    Q&A 5: Would it be possible to monitor and send alert when file mover failed?

    Q: I was wondering if it would be possible to monitor and send alert when file mover failed?

    A: Yes this is possible using our Rule Events option

    Please open the Rule Events Setup:

    In this example we’ll only enable email for the ‘On Error’ event. Important, if you want to use other events then you’ll need to do a seperate setup for them.

    • Enable ‘On Error’
    • Enable ‘Enable Mail’
    • Use Common SMTP (we will use the Common SMTP setup in this example)

    Click the button next to the SMTP Setup selector and setup your SMTP. We are using gmail smtp in this example but you are free to choose.

    Click the button left from the ‘Enable Mail’ checkbox and setup the email event message.

    Finally click the test button (red marked button) and check the result in the log window.

    Please remember:

    • The email setup has to be done for each Event seperately (On Succes, On Error, ..).
    • You can use a Common SMTP setup so you only need to setup this once.
    • Each Moving Rule will use their own Event settings.

    If you need help, please let us know.

    Event Log Monitoring

    Event Log Monitoring

    A while ago we received the following questions  from one of our users:

    My name is .. from the .. GmbH in Germany. I have two questions about your program (LimagitoX):

    1. Is it possible to Change the Event-ID at the Event Viewer? We want to monitor this Event with our Monitoring System. Our Idea is when an Event comes in with “On Success” it should be have another Event-ID as “On Error”.

    2. Our Second question / problem we get following Event Description:

    The description for Event ID 0 from source LimagitoX.exe cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your
    local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer. If the event originated on another
    computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

    Is it possible to change this description or is this an mistake from your program? (the red labeled text)

    Thanks for your help!

    So we did what he asked and the result is available starting from version v11.12.12.0.

    EventLog

    We’ve added the following Id’s and Categories to make it much more suited when using external monitoring tools.

    Event Id’s:

    • IdDoNotUse = 0;
    • IdWINGET = 1;
    • IdWINPUT = 2;
    • IdWINBAK = 3;
    • IdFTPGET = 6;
    • IdFTPPUT = 7;
    • IdSFTPGET = 11;
    • IdSFTPPUT = 12;
    • IdPOP3GET = 16;
    • IdHTTPGET = 21;
    • IdIMAP4GET = 26;
    • IdAWSS3GET = 31;
    • IdAWSS3PUT = 32;
    • IdSMTPPUT = 37;
    • IdPSCPUT = 42;
    • IdZIPPUT = 47;
    • IdDELETE = 55;
    • IdOnCommand = 94;
    • IdOnDestination = 95;
    • IdOnDestinations = 96;
    • IdSRCTHREAD = 98;
    • IdDSTTHREAD = 99;

    Event Categories:

    • CatDoNotUse = 0;
    • CatOnSuccess = 1;
    • CatOnError = 2;
    • CatOnBkpSuccess = 3;
    • CatOnBkpError = 4;
    • CatOnVrfSuccess = 5;
    • CatOnVrfError = 6;
    • CatOnFileInUse = 7;
    • CatOnNoFile = 8;
    • CatOnRuleBegin = 9;
    • CatOnRuleEnd = 10;
    • CatOnPscSuccess = 11;
    • CatOnPscError = 12;

    We also had to add an extra dll and a registry entry to get rid of the red labeled text. The installer will handle this for you.
