NAME
       mtailrc - Configuration file for	monkeytail

DESCRIPTION
       A monkeytail configuration uses Apache-style syntax to declare "groups"
       of files	to be tailed.

       Best explained with an example:

	   <group testgroup>
	       prefix 'server2:	'
	       sudo yes
	       <file>
		   filename /var/log/apache2/access.log
		   prefix 'server1: '
		   host	server1.example.com
	       </file>
	       <file>
		   filename /var/log/apache2/access.log
		   host	server2.example.com
		   sudo	no
	       </file>
	   </group>

OPTIONS
       All options can be either put inside a group or file block. Options in-
       side a file block override those	in the group block.

       filename	filename

	      filename defines the filename for	this block.

       host remote-host	(optional)

	      host  defines that this block's file is to be tailed on a	remote
	      server.

       sudo yes|no|1|0

	      sudo is a	boolean	specifying whether this	file should be	tailed
	      as  root.	  This	option	is supported for both local and	remote
	      files (in	both cases you will potentially	be prompted  for  your
	      password).

       prefix "string: "

	      prefix  allows  you  to  specify	a  short  string  that will be
	      prepended	to every line that is displayed	for that given file.
