Support for setting default value for the actInitialReadEOF variable at a global level

If you are configuring BMC PATROL for Log Management from PATROL console, you can set default value for the actInitialReadEOF configuration variable for all the log management instances created on the specified PATROL Agent.

You can set the /PMG/actInitialReadEOF configuration variable with any of the following values,

  • 0 - log file reads from the last offset
  • 1 - log file reads from the end of the file
  • 2 - log file reads from the beginning of the file

For more information, see PATROL Agent configuration variables.

Support for displaying full name of the LOGMON display name

A new configuration variable, /PMG/CONFIG/dispFullName has been added in BMC PATROL for Log Management for displaying full name of the LOGMON display name.

 You can display the full name of a LOGMON instance display name by setting the PMG/CONFIG/dispFullName variable value to 1:

 /PMG/CONFIG/dispFullName=1

If you set the dispFullName variable value to 0, then the LOGMON instance name will be truncated:

/PMG/CONFIG/dispFullName=0

For more information, see PATROL Agent configuration variables.

Support for generating single event instead of two events

 A new configuration variable, /PMG/CONFIG/sendSingleEvent has been added in BMC PATROL for Log Management for generating only one single event instead of two events for exceeding a defined threshold. 

 You can generate one single event by setting the PMG/CONFIG/sendSingleEvent variable value to 1:

/PMG/CONFIG/sendSingleEvent=1

If you set the sendSingleEvent variable value to 0, then two events will be generated for exceeding a defined threshold, out of which, one event will be generated from BMC PATROL for Log Management and the other from the BMC PATROL for Event Management. 

/PMG/CONFIG/sendSingleEvent=0

The default value value is 0.

  • Windows 2012 R2
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0, 7.1
