Importing WebSphere - multiple SystemOut.log files


So, at the moment, I want to import log files which were copied from the remote server to my Windows PC.

I want to import all of the proxy and AS logs and they all have the same SystemOut.log name.

What's the proper way to do that?  (I could rename each filename so that they are unique - but I'm sure there's a better way).   Searching the forum, I see some info regarding getting the live files, but not for an import.

Our websphere logs are in folder structure on linux:

I hope when you copied them you maintain the folder structure;

If you can get a UF inputs setup and pushed; I know it is easy;  not sure how much effort versus how many files to say is worthwhile.  If this is a routine task then probably work to setup a folder to allow drop and process.



If you have a UF and can get an INPUT setup:

The below c (1) \ logs (2) \ <folder> (3) is the hostname of the server.  Then would come in mapped to host name

source = websphere
host_segment = 3

At the moment, I'm just trying to  learn the platform. I haven't gotten to UF yet.


So, in summary:  There needs to be something unique in the path to the filename.


It seems like the UI only allows you to select a file. As such, I've tested with zip-ping the path to the files and that works..  Is there another way of including the path, without first zipping it?

(The logfiles I have are inside zips with other files I don't want to index.. As such, I end up unzipping and re-zipping.)
