BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 Log Monitoring Tool

This tool can be used with:
  • BlackBerry Device Service only

The BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 Log Monitoring Tool is a command-line tool that you can use to monitor the log files for a BlackBerry Device Service component. You can configure the tool to perform an action when it finds specific events or text strings in the log files. You can use the tool to monitor a specific log file, or to continuously monitor the log files that a component creates each day.

For example, you can configure the tool to monitor the BlackBerry Dispatcher (DISP) log files for event ID 50108. In the component log files, event IDs are enclosed in brackets ( [ ] ) at the beginning of log entries, using the following format: "[50108] (08/18 15:56:55.723):{0xDB0} Dispatcher Database connection dropped". When the tool finds the event ID or text string, it performs the specified action. For example, you can configure the tool to run a custom batch file to restart the BlackBerry Dispatcher.

You can configure the tool to monitor the log files for one component at a time.
