OVO Logfile monitoring



We want to set up OVO such that when a particular pattern is not existing in the log file, it should generate an alert. Is there anyscript through which we can do this.?

You can use pattern matching to do this.

Here the <![ ]>can hold a pattern that you don't want to be there and so if this condition matches then it will trigger an alarm. Check if this will work for what you want.


Hope this helps.
