Titlemk_logwatch via bakery: Add APPEND option for message classification
Checkmk EditionCheckmk Enterprise Edition (CEE)
Checkmk Version2.2.0i1
LevelTrivial Change
ClassBug Fix
CompatibilityCompatible - no manual interaction needed

The mk_logwatch agent plugin can be deployed via the agent bakery (ruleset Text logfiles
(Linux, Solaris, Windows)
). In this ruleset, users can specify regular expressions for
processing log messages. Before this werk, users could specify regular expressions to classify
messages (OK/WARNING/CRITICAL), to ignore messages and to rewrite messages.

As of this werk, users can additionally specify regular expressions to combine multiple log lines
into a single message via the APPEND option, see the help of the bakery ruleset for details. One use
case for this is the processing of multi-line stack traces.

Note that this feature was already supported by the mk_logwatch agent plugin before this
werk, but it was not configurable via the agent bakery.
