Windows 2003 Server en + Dude 3.4
I installed Dude 3.6 over the 3.4 version.
In the result all my customs logs disapear, but notifications remained.

I can't reboot this server. I will try to reproduce bug with reboot at home.

3. Create New Device - Device - IP(not existed) --> Notification TestLog
4. Wait until device will go down and alert placed in TestLog

Do you close the Dude client or just simply reboot the Windows?

Excellent!
I have been created several instances in Logs, and all are still there after reboot! Naturally there is some short gap in logging during restart, but logging continues to fill in existing log file.

Now, we have a new question, imagine we have 50 log instances (logs) in Dude Syslog (50 routers) and we wanna create backup, as we usually do on weekly basis. This backup will be huge file since it will pull all log files. How we can create backup only with settings not with files? Is there some syntax with --exclude options for example?

We don`t need to include those files since we backup them using some scripts.

Thank you!

Actually we are quite satisfied with new .tar.gz backup format so there is no need to compress all those log files within dude separately since there are already compressed on proper way.

How we can automate backup, for example every day 5am run export and specify location? Is it possible using some command script and put it in scheduler (just like we pres export and specify location when dialog box prompts - two extraordinary simple steps)? I have been found some solutions related to previous versions of dude, must be some way to do this in 4.0x

just set it to "start new file: every day" and the old file will be saved in the defined location. this is configured in the "files" tab of the log settings in Dude.

thank you for reply normis, I know that, this is ok. But anyway we have to copy those old files each day and compress on backup storage, what can be accomplished now through new dude backup way - tar.gz.
Story is: by the new law we are obligated to keep certain log files up to 12 months (!), as we have many users and BS (M`TIK) that would be few gigabytes log files each day.
Initially I was thinking to create powershell script which will copy & compress only log files to backup storage, but now it`s easier to do everything with simple dude backup/export since everything will be already compressed, and compress ratio is excellent since log files are ordinary txt files, so more than 10GB will be few hundred MB.
Now I only need to automate two clicks - export and save to some location :). I can`t accept someone will do that each day, no matter how it is simple - it would be stupid either :D... However, if it`s not possible accomplish this through command line/script with dude (when I`ll solve also dude itself backup procedure), I`ll go back to powershell script.

Thank you.

Ah, so your request basically is to offer tar.gz compression for the log files?

Exactly, what we need -> we already have with new backup procedure in 4.02 beta. No matter if everything is zipped (included rest of files), it would be all dude backup itself anyway, dozen MB every day more or less... Just to find out how to automate dude backup on daily basis...

Ok gsandul, now you move from karma No. 13 :)...
it looks much easier now with http, so I have parameters for playing arround. I also opened inbound rule for web access in LAN. If I succeed with PowerShell script on my Win2008 I`ll post it here.

Thank you.

Hi,

I am having exactly the same problem with custom logs. After rebooting the computer, all log files are dissapears.
I tried different versions of Dude 3.6 & 4.02 and different OS like XP Pro, Win7 etc. but couldn't find a solution :((

Hi Guys,

I found the solution. Little tricky but works for me...

I renamed the Events to LOG as I wish. I selected LOG for custom log file.

After rebooting the computer, Dude creats Events again and LOG did not dissaper...

I realize this is an old Thread, but I am having the same issue of custom logs disappearing after a reboot. Did anyone ever solve this as I need approx 6 different custom log files to accomodate our needs
