Monitoring non system logs

svertner

Hello,

I've been looking around and have not found anything so far to answer my question so I figured I would post and hope someone can help. 

We have NPM, and APM.  I am looking for a way to alert (email) off of a log event, that does not get written to the system log.  The Application is a windows service that fires off some java code and a log file is generated.  I tried to open this file "scheduler.log" in the windows event viewer, but it said the file is already in use.  We use the Solarwinds log forwarder, but from what I can tell it only grabs the event viewer logs.  Is there a way to add what is forwarded? Is there another product that would cover this senario?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,

Shane
