Monitoring Policy Templates
A monitoring policy template defines the structure of a log. During the creation of a monitoring policy, you define the type of log you want to monitor by selecting a template.
The template properties, which include parsing criteria, are used by monitoring policies to track specific chunks of log information. For example, the following are some properties that you can specify:
- Data type and format of the columns in the log file
- Delimiting characters that separate each column
The following table lists the templates that are available when you create monitoring policies:
|Text Log Files|| The following templates are available to parse text log files:
|Database|| The following templates are available to track specific events in the CommServe database:
The log data tracked by the Database templates can only be monitored using the Log Monitoring dashboard. Alerts and reports from the CommCell Console are not supported for this template.
|Windows Events||Tracks Microsoft Windows events.|
|SysLogs||Tracks UNIX system logs.|
|On Demand||Tracks any log file that is uploaded using the Log Monitoring dashboard on the Web Console.|
To check if a predefined template meets your log requirements, see the following procedures:

If the predefined text-based templates do not meet your log requirements, you can create and manage your own template. For more information, see Creating a Monitoring Policy Template.
