LooperNG is an intelligent event routing daemon. Primarily used for Network Management, this application can be used to accomplish a variety of tasks related to logging and alerting such as trap forwarding/exploding, event enrichment, converting event formats (syslog->SNMP, SNMP->flatfile, syslog->Netcool), etc. It uses a system of input and output modules to interface with the event sources/sinks and a "rules file" to control the flow of the events.
