Monitoring a "random" logfile with logmon

Hi Team,

Has anyone come across this problem before?  A customer needs to monitor the log file for their application however it is created with a date and time stamp that reflects the time either that the application was restarted, or when the log files were rotated.  So for example, the log file directory may contain the following files:

 

201012180001.log

201012181436.log

201012190001.log

201012200000.log

201012200643.log

201012202113.log

 

I'm having trouble working out how it would be possible to configure logmon to be able to monitor the contents of these log files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

John
