Questions about log monitoring constraints

Hello, I am a Korean engineer.

 

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/how-to-use-dynatrace/log-monitoring/log-monitoring-v1/add-log...

 

Why are there differences between *.log files and directory constraints for *.out files in the above document?

 

For example)

1: /home/moco/log/hub/Test.log   ( Registered )

2: /var/log/Test.log (Registered)

3: /home/moco/log/hub/Test.out  (not Registered)

4: /var/log/Test.out (Registered)

It's just a convention we use to not push all text files into the log ingest. Some may be outputs of a script and not necessary a traditional log file. We believe it's safer to add what we are sure of and leave to user a decision to add more, rather than automatically push too much.
