4. Processing a Monitor Result Output

Home  Previous  Next

Once a Monitor instance is created in the PATROL Console, you can process the result output to retrieve specific information or to detect the presence of strings or numeric values that should or not be present.

Prior to perform analysis of a Monitor's output, you may have to pre-process the data in order to make it manageable by the search/extraction tools. Typically, the usual procedure consists in:

Pre-Processing the Monitor Output
Split the Monitor Output
Analyzing the Monitor Output:
Searching for a specific string
Extracting a numeric value
Mapping Values
