vtwatch is a program that will automatically switch active virtual consoles on your Linux system in a loop. This in affect acts as a virtual terminal surveillance monitor. You can choose a speed as the amount of delay time to be used before it switches to the next console. It also reads everything on each screen so that you can input a search string and be notified if it shows up on a given console. Whichever console you run the program from acts as the main control center.
If you run vtwatch from say tty4 then you will have to type alt+F4 to get back to the control center.
vtwatch will beep and pause itself on the console that a search string is matched on.
vtwatch -s [search_string] -d [delay]
Default search_string is "vtwatch".
Default delay time is 5 seconds.
