SCOM Log file Monitor - NICE MP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to monitor multiple log files in same server. Created single alert generating rule ( Nice Log File)

    1) Nice Log file -> Alert ruel -> Expression Filtered -> alert rule

    2) I source setting  - gave full path



    3) In build event expression - LogFileLine  Contains Error

    So alert should be generated whenever word "Error" is logged in text file

    But I am getting only one alert from test.txt but not from Test1.txt.

    How can I receive different alerts from 2 log files from same server fro the same error.

    Also I am not able to get the alert from multiple  servers for the same path and same error.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi Sir,

    I assume that you are going to monitoring txt file for windows servers .

    To monitor two txt files , I would suggest you to use aggregate rollup monitor :

    1.create a aggregate rollup monitor (worst state of any member)

    2.crate two unit monitor (time reset ; without alert) for each txt file .

    If you want to monitor specific servers , you may try to create a group for these servers .

    Best Regards,
