Hello Dattatray,

The Host Monitoring Agent monitors the state of a host machine and it can also monitor availability of any process running on the host.

The log file monitor searches a Windows or Linux log file for text or regular expression and returns if a new line was found, and the last line number to contain the regex.

Hello @Babar Q.

Thanks for your response. Can we monitor log file with the help of host monitoring agent instead of using "Log File Monitor" plugin?

Hello @Dattatray M.

No. We cannot monitor the logs with the host and technology based agents.
