I was referring to the same plugin in my question. This plugin can monitor the log files which are only on databases of Windows/Linux but not any App server like Oracle WebLogic. Is my understanding is right?
The log files I want to monitor are not on a database.
Fortunately, you're wrong. 😃
You can monitor any log file at any directory in those systems. The Linux access is done through ssh, and windows through the same account that the collector service is run.
Give it a try when possible and let me know,
So for example if I am doing this for windows/linux and I specify host in Hosts section, what details do I need to provide in all database details?
Can I give just any database details here?
Is there any reason why we should give all db details when I am not monitoring log files on db?
The point regarding the DB is that the plugin uses the database specified at the config screen, to store the data that it captures. It is not related to monitor the/any database at all.
Also, from my experience the plugin doesn't seem to work if we don't specify a database to store the data that it captures.
Let me know!
