Custom log file monitoring.

Hi Team,

We planning to monitor a custom log file that is not part of any process and process group. We have tried to enable the log monitoring using below product article.

Add log files manually | Dynatrace Docs

 

But it's not working out. Is their any configuration needed apart from this.

 

Regards,

Amit Singh Bisht

What type of storage your logs files are located?

Hi Amit, 

 

Please check the prerequisites to the definition of the path (especially the use of the wildcards which can be a problem) :

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/log-monitoring-add-log-files-v2#considerations-for-... 

I suggest also to check the encodage of the log files (ASCII not supported and considered as a binary file):

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/log-monitoring-supported-format#plain-text-logs 

Finally, just verify the log monitoring has been enabled in the agent configuration (ruxitagentloganalytics.conf) :
