Below are the files to monitor
Below is the stanza I am using
Is this the correct monitor stanza or am I doing something wrong?
The stanza is correct but did you assign a sourcetype=foo and index=bar under it so that you know where to look for the data?
If that stanza results in those files being monitored, then the stanza is correct. If the files are not monitored, then something is amiss and you should share the entire stanza.
index = main
sourcetype = db_health
The above stanza is from the deployment server and below is the event from the internal logs for that host
03-19-2019 14:01:47.251 -0400 INFO WatchedFile - Will begin reading at offset=522894 for file='/var/log/cbsensor/cbdaemon.ORCLPRODSS1-AZ3.invalid-user.log.INFO.20190318-103119.10963
Oh, you should look for something like -
-- 03-16-2019 23:00:00.089 -0500 INFO WatchedFile - Will begin reading at offset=0 for file='/Backup/HealthCheck/Reports/CBA_HC_Mar_19_19_08_27_03.log'.
Your monitor stanza looks just fine.
