Getting Data In

Filter logs according to specific criteria before indexing

Path Finder

I am trying to limit the amount of data that is stored in the indexers; I only want to keep data that would be considered "useful" for our administrators. For example, we have a *nix add-on that runs a script that calls the command 'top' every 2 minutes, but the results from this command blow up the daily indexing usage.

Is there a way to pre-filter logs according to specific criteria? Could I only store logs where the reported CPU usage is greater than 75%, and not store any logs where that value is lower than the criteria for example? If there is a procedure that would help me tailor many other results to create more compact but useful events that would great.
