TEC logfile adapter resending old events

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

TEC logfile adapter is resending old events that were already processed by TEC

Symptom

TEC adapter is monitoring several logsources. Once in a while, old events from one of the monitored logsource are re-sent


Cause

One of the logs monitored was periodically truncated. By default, a monitored logsource is considered as new if the filesize change. By truncating the log, the adapter treated the logsource as new and the remaining events were re-sent to TEC. See also parameter 'NewLogBasedOn' in the adapter's guide.

Resolving the problem

Do not truncate existing logs. Either erase logs completely or use rotating logs.
