Do we have any possibility to monitor empty log file

Hi,

I want to monitor the log file and send an alert(problem) when the application process stops writing events to log file.

does anyone already implemented it?

That one is tricky, but there is an upcoming alerting feature in Dynatrace release 212 (rollout in the next 2 weeks) that helps to solve that.

This feature allows you to alert on missing data.

So my proposed way would be:

1.) Define a log metric that writes a 1 for all kind of log lines

2.) Define a custom event for alerting if the number drops below a threshold AND alert if metric shows missing data (meaning no log lines are written anymore).

Ok Thanks for the quick help
