Description:
Agent does not read error log (or indeed any other log) that might contain relevant information that could be presented in the Dashboard and used to alert customers, instead of using some separate monitoring of the logfiles.

How to repeat:
tail -f mysqld.err | send-to-dashboard

Suggested fix:
Start checking output of error log and parse and present in useful way in the dashboard. Enabling alerts to trigger and send emails if content is worrying.
