Why cant we have a new component monitor to existing SAM components which would check for a specific pattern on a File (especially for Windows)?
It could be similar to 'Windows Event log monitor' or a better example would be 'File Existence Monitor'.
For custom logs on Windows servers we will either need to go with Windows script monitor's VBS etc. Rather than writing scripts for the same, can we have a simple monitor like say 'Patter Match on File' which would just take in 2 inputs like 'Filename' & 'Search Pattern' on the File.
We get several requests from application teams for a pattern match on Windows Logs (these logs do not exist on Event Viewer)
To accommodate such requests we can have a simple new monitor as mentioned above. Later on Solarwinds team can extend it to have more things added to it.
