Hello,

Tomcat creating files for error outputs with filenames like this: tomcat8-stdout.2020-06-17

I want to monitor all error messages in this file via Textlog text.

How can i select the latest tomcat8-stdout-File? tomcat8-stdout* and tomcat8-stdout%newestfile% does not work.

Best regards,
Mirko

of course.
Why you cannot use just %newestfille% variable? Other files (not just tomcat logs) created in this folder every day?
Then I would suggest to set tomcat8-stdout.%yyyy-mm-dd%

Hello,

Tomcat did not create new logfiles ever day. It use the logfiles since last restart.

Actually i need to monitor follow file: tomcat8-stderr.2020-06-17.log


I tried tomcat8-stderr.%newestfile% with activated checkbox "translate macros". But HM replied RMA: Test Error and Status is unknown.
If i use the filename instead, everything works.

There are a lot of other files in same folder, for example access-logs. So %newestfile% would choose the wrong file

Then HostMonitor cannot perform such test
