Getting Data In

How to develop a regular expression that will blacklist my log paths in inputs.conf?

ppanchal
Path Finder

Below is my monitoring path

[monitor:///wasapps/WAS85/logs/restconnect_alppapp102was85Node01]

I want to blacklist the below files

/wasapps/WAS85/logs/restconnect_alppapp102was85Node01/restConnectApp.log
/wasapps/WAS85/logs/restconnect_alppapp102was85Node01/restConnectPerformance.log

I have tried the below regex, but none of them worked.

[monitor:///wasapps/WAS85/logs/restconnect_alppapp102was85Node01]
blacklist = restConnect*\.(log)$
blacklist = restConnect[App|Performance]\.(log)$

Can someone please help?

Some cheerful examples in the documentation at Whitelist- or blacklist-specific incoming data

It shows -

blacklist = restConnect.*\.log$

This should blacklist every file that starts with "restConnect" and ends with .log

I guess this did not work.
Any other solution?

Oh, my bad. Try

blacklist = .*restConnect.*\.log$
