How to search for empty logfiles?

New Member

Is there a search that will warn me of a logfile that is 0 bytes and is not updating?

Hi gmhp, You can schedule an alert to run a search like "source=" for the last 30 minutes and triger the alert if number of results is equals to 0.

Hope this helps!
