Module monitor fail2ban log file to show all bans for all active jails

Requirements: * fail2ban.log file MUST BE readable by netdata (A good idea is to add create 0640 root netdata to fail2ban conf at logrotate.d)

It produces one chart with multiple lines (one line per jail)



 log_path: '/var/log/fail2ban.log'
 conf_path: '/etc/fail2ban/jail.local'
 exclude: 'dropbear apache'
If no configuration is given, module will attempt to read log file at /var/log/fail2ban.log and conf file at /etc/fail2ban/jail.local. If conf file is not found default jail is ssh.
