You'll find that many areas of the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution allow you leverage Regular Expressions.


Regular Expressions are powerful in that they provide a concise and flexible means of matching strings of text. However, if you don't use them all the time, its easy to forget formatting and such.


I found a great cheat sheet for regular expressions that I've attached to this message as a PDF. Try using these to expand what a single "Watcher" can look for in the logmon probe!


I got this from here.


There are also quite a few other cheat sheets you might find handy here.


All of them appear to be free!


Hope this is helpful!
