    Sentry Monitoring Studio X: Dynamic File Monitoring

      Hi Monitoring Studio Experts!

       

      I have an interesting scenario. Text files are written to a directory. The content of the text files should be transformed into events. I thought, the Monitoring Studio KM should be perfect to do that. But actually I cannot do it. I can either create a flat file monitor but it is only monitoring one file when I use wildcards or I can use a folder monitor but then I cannot access the content of the file.

       

      Maybe I do not know how to do it properly.

       

      Here some details:

       

      Folder: /this/is/my/folder

      Files: event_######.txt (where #### is a date and a number)

       

      Each file contains information which should be transformed into an event.

       

      Help is much appreciated!

       

      Regards,

      Patrick
