Can the logfilter agent monitor a log on a different host?
I have Server A with the logfilter agent install and I want to monitor a log on Server B. Both servers are located on the FOC and can resolve each other. Under the logfilter ASP Log File list I have configured as follows: Log-1 Path \\server B\d:\errors\ Log-1 File Name system.log Will this setup work or what would be the configurations to monitor to another log on a different host.
By default, the logfilter cannot monitor a log on a different host. It wouldnt be able to resolve the server name in the Log-1 Path as indicated in example. The condition would return a broken state with a message cannot find log:<logname></logname>and rapsd has lost communication. The logfilter agent can only monitor logs on the host that its installed on. An example of a standard appropriate way of setting up is as follows: Log-1 Path D:\errors\ Log-1 File Name system.log
