Quickstart - step 5: batch processing

Interactive use with the GUI is interesting for immediate test. But log files are produced every day: you have to analyze it by batch every day.

Reports can be published by different means:

  • written to disk,
  • sent by mail,
  • added to news feed,
  • published by your own extension, matching your specific needs

LogDistiller provides an Ant task for batch automation:

    <logdistiller conf="classification-rules.xml">
      <property name="..." value="..."/>
      <fileset dir=".">
        <include name="*.log"/>

To ease its usage, when you press the batch button of the GUI, a base Ant build file content is generated: just save it to a file, and modify it to match your needs.
