How do I respond to a logfile?

Today I saw a question about reponse on a logfile monitor, as there is no “Diagnostic and recovery” tab on a log file monitor. A solution to this is to use a rule instead. If you create a Alert Generating Rules/Event Based/Generic Text Log(Alert) rule, then right-click it and choose properties, you can add a response on the Configuration tab. You can for example add to run a command or a script.
