Alerting

How to configure my email alert to exclude results?

New Member

Hi ,

I have set up alerting on Java exceptions:

My search string:

index=myapp_logs source=/opt/man/myapp/myapp.log exception=java*

The above search emails us when a threshold for no of exceptions is met.

I need Spunk to exclude some specific exceptions, Spunk should ignore these multiple exceptions.

java.test.IllegArgumentException
java.test.IllegArgumentException
javat.persistence.testException

How do i get this done?

Can you not try to modify the initial search to exclude the strings that you do not require as a start, something like:

index=myapp_logs source=/opt/man/myapp/myapp.log exception=java* NOT ( exception=java*IllegArgumentException OR exception=javat.persistence.testException)

OR if you do some multivalued extractions from where these exception strings are extracted then close the SPL with | search exception!=java*IllegArgumentException and so on.
