CA Systems Performance for IM (SystemEdge)
The requirement is to check log file entries for today's date and if the line also includes "N" to send an alert.
- SytemEDGE regex is looking for a pattern match, but there is no way for the agent to automatically enumerate what today's date is.
- The only way to satisfy this requirement would be to have the application alter the logging to create a new log file every 24 hours.
- SystemEDGE supports rotating log files and will monitor the newest file.
- You could then use a log file monitor agaisnt the most current file to match lines that have the N value.
