Collecting logs for BMC Helix Log Analytics
BMC Helix Log Analytics uses integration capabilities of BMC Helix Developer Tools to collect logs. BMC Helix Developer Tools uses docker-based Fluentd connector to collect logs. For more information, see Downloading and installing connectors for third-party integrations.
The connector requires parsing formats based on which logs are parsed while collection such as Apache, Apache error, and so on. You can also define which log messages you want to include or exclude by using the grep condition. For more information about these parsing formats and grep condition, see Logs parsing and filtering.
