Log File Monitoring Expectations

Dear All,

Did anyone have a log monitoring plugin to cover the minimum following requirements?


  • Alert
    when the log file has not been updated for 2,10 or 30 minutes.
  • Alert
    when the log file is missing
  • Alert
    when the log file is 0 bytes in size
  • Alert
    when the log file is not 0 bytes in size (and optionally send the first
    line of the log file)
  • Alert
    when the log file contains a string
  • Alert
    when the log file is updated and the new lines contain a string.





Regards,

Babar

Hmmm I don't think it is possible in appmon. Some of those cases can be done by writing custom Monitor, but alerting when new lines occurs needs some kind of watchdog. I think for such purpose it will be better for using elasticsearch and logstash + filebeat.
