I have run into a new issue. There are occasionally "[WARNING]" messages that I care about as much as "[SEVERE]" messages. Thus, I would like to be able to trigger on more than just "SEVERE". How do I trigger on more than just that?

I'm thinking of triggering on these so far:

  • java.lang.ClassCastException (or possibly just "java.lang.Class*" as there should never be any of that in a happy log file)
  • generated an exception
Of course, if I start to overlap with "SEVERE" then I may just have to use other triggers instead. Not sure.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
The changes you are suggesting require a completely different aproach than the script I provided before uses.

It really isn't fair to those of us who want to help you to say that you're thinking about a list of triggers. Let us know when you've thought about it enough to give us solid requirements.

The issues that were raised when you started this thread seem to have been resolved. When you can show us representative input data, corresponding desired output, and a complete set of requirements for this new problem, please start a new thread to discuss it.

Fair enough. Sorry. Didn't mean to offend or break the rules. Thank you.
