Some logs have timestamps in filename, some don't, combine into 1

New Member

Hello,

We are having problems with logging a certain file pattern, which is coming from Sitecore (shouldn't matter).

The first time in the day that the service is restarted/recycled, it creates a file like: log.20170502.txt

However, on subsequent restarts, it creates log files with timestamps, like: log.20170502.085920.txt

Is there any way to set up the forwarder to make it look like to the search heads/indexers that it all comes from log.txt?

Thanks in advanced.

If each of those log files carries distinct data, then just set up your regex to catch all of them, with something like this...

log\.(\d+\.){0,2}txt

or

log\.\d+\.\d+?\.?txt

But what we are trying to do is have it show up as just log.txt in the search head, just for easing searching among files.
