logmon and file reset/rename

    Hi,

    We are monitoring some application log files with logmon and as those files are growing, I would like to rename them and restart with an empty file (note the log file name is fixed and does not contain date/time). For the main application we have  a single log file and multiple processes that can update it.

     

    I've just performed this test with a watcher that gets all lines from a file called test.log and send alarms (no filter, update mode):

     

    - write alarm1 into test.log

    - write alarm2

    --> logmon check1: received alarm1 and alarm2

    - write alarm3

    - write alarm4

    ==> rename test.log to test.old

    - write alarm5 into the newly created test.log file

    --> logmon check2 (1min after check1): alarm5 received but alarm 3 and 4 lost which is logical but not acceptable.

     

    I was thinking of a synchronisation procedure with AO profile and scripts but I would really appreciate ideas to prevent from this alarm loss in a simple manner.

    Thanks for your help.
