Monitoring Policy Templates

A monitoring policy template defines the structure of a log. During the creation of a monitoring policy, you define the type of log you want to monitor by selecting a template.

The template properties, which include parsing criteria, are used by monitoring policies to track specific chunks of log information. For example, the following are some properties that you can specify:

  • Data type and format of the columns in the log file
  • Delimiting characters that separate each column

Predefined Templates

The following table lists the templates that are available when you create monitoring policies:
