LogFile Monitoring with Kernel 7.20 (without ccms agents)?

Hello guys,

has anybody a documentation/weblinks to setup the (content) logfile monitoring (rz20)?

Since the new 7.20 kernel it should be possible to run logfile monitoring without these agents,

but I can't get any information how to setup which file should be monitored...

Currently I'd tried to modify the file


          ### Format of entries for logfile monitoring:

          #  LogFile <full path of logfile template>

          LogFile ...\SAP\hostctrl\logmon\diag_logmon.ini

content of file diag_logmon.ini

     DIRECTORY="...\temp"  (thats the full path to the db logfile)


Version of hostctrl => 7.20 patch 124

After restart hostctrl service/reboot of server nothing happens (there is no error visible at the rz20 - logfile monitoring)

Has anybody an idea to setup the file monitoring correctly?

best regards

    Hello Andreas,

    Could you please refer to the note 535199 and check whether the
    settings are correctly according to the note.

    # 535199 - CCMS agents: Monitoring log files

    Also, check that you are using current version of the agent.(latest patch collection).

      Hello Andreas,

      did you ever get this figured out? I am just looking at the same. We had file monitoring in place with sapccm4x before upgrading to  the 720 kernel.

    perhaps you can use sapcontrol inside of your scripts..
