We use a Perl script to incrementally scan the logfile of a ISC dhcp 
server, and report the number of dhcp actions since the last run of the 
script. The results are reported to Xymon. The output generated by Xymon is 
shown in the attachment. Please ignore message type 'netmon': that is a NLR 
specific extension.

Is that what you are looking for?
