Log Monitoring Configuration

To monitor the logs in your environment, you must configure the following elements:

  • Monitoring Policy Templates

    Used by monitoring policies to track specific chunks of log information.

  • Monitoring Policies

    Provides a set of options to efficiently track the log events you want to capture.

  • Log Monitoring Application

    An application available from the Web Console where you can search and analyze log file data.


The CommCell administrator or a user designated by the CommCell administrator, such as application or system administrators, can configure the log monitoring elements.

Users designated by the CommCell administrator must have a security association that includes the following:
  • A role with the Agent Management or Administrative Management permission.
  • For monitoring policies configured with the On Demand template, an entity association with the clients or client groups that are used as staging servers for log file uploads.
  • For all other monitoring policies, an entity association with the clients or client groups that contain the logs to be monitored.
