       sagan - Real-time System & Event Log Monitoring System


       sagan [options]


       This manual page documents briefly the sagan command.

       sagan  is  a multi-threaded, real time system- and event-log monitoring system, but with a
       twist. Sagan uses a “Snort” like rule set for detecting malicious events happening on your
       network and/or computer systems.
       If  Sagan  detects  a  potentially bad event, that event can be stored to a Snort database
       (MySQL/PostgreSQL), send it to a SIEM tool like Prelude, or send an email.
       Sagan is meant to be used in a ‘centralized’ logging environment, but will  work  fine  as
       part of a standalone Host IDS system for workstations.


       These  programs  follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
