File Monitoring and String Search libraries

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you use Monitoring Studio to perform String Searches in LOG files on OpenVMS servers.

What does it fix?

This bundle of libraries improves the monitoring and parsing of LOG files on OpenVMS servers. The ftell() PSL function does not always return the proper position in the file being monitored: a workaround as been implemented. The OpenVMS BACKUP command would also sometimes restore previously deleted temporary files. This would prevent Monitoring Studio from parsing the new file content.

How to install the patch?

Copy the SW_sentry_files.lib, SW_sentry_shared.lib and the SW_sentry_strings.lib files in the %PATROL_HOME%\lib\psl directory of the managed server. Restart the PATROL Agent for the patch to take effect. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.

Warning! Once the file is installed, the KM stops working until the PATROL Agent has been reinitialized.
