Hi all,

    Just a quick question...  Does the expect parameter use a full regex 
expression?  I'm trying to monitor the replication status on my MySQL 
server and I want to ensure that Slave_IO_Running and Slave_SQL_Running 
are both Yes.  I believe I can do this by checking for the string "| 
Yes        | Yes" in the return of "show slave status;" ...  I just need 
to figure out how to get that into Argus :)  I was thinking something 
along the lines of  | Yes/s+| Yes   ...  Maybe?
