Getting Data In

Search to find when a forwarder restarted?



Is there a search that I can run that shows when a forwarder starts, and is considered up and running? I want to create transactions - one that shows it starts and is running, and another that shows it started but isn't running (and therefore some errors may exist).

There are messages in the internal logs, _*.

index =_*  host=<fwd name> starting

Even better is the deployment app, look for all kinds of things and is easy to setup alerts.
