Missing simple parsefile plugin

Hello everybody
We would like to have the possibility to locally parse structured text files (txt, csv, log files, …) and check them for matching strings on a particular position or extract numeric values.
There seems not to exist a check plugin for this use case out of the box.
Does everybody write its own check plugin or might there be plans to official implement something similar in the near future?
Thanks for your answers.
Best regards,

Hello Gianni,

If its just about text you may use logwatch:

If you also want to extract metrics you can either write a local check or a full check with agent plugin.



Hi Michael
Thank you for your answer. As supposed, there has to be written something by myself.
Have a nice day.
Best regards,
