Log File Management Tool (LFMT) Package 8.5.101.00 contains LFMT Collector release 8.5.101.05, LFMT Client release 8.5.101.05, Workbench Agent release 8.5.101.03, and LFMT Indexer release 8.5.101.00.
- The filter details for generating a file package were added to the details.txt file within the package (LMST-625)
- The location of the temp file directory can be modified via a configuration option (app_config/ tmp_folder_location) (LMST-638)
- Added local interface binding configuration on the Collector side of the connection to the Agent (LMST-645)
- Removed the need for the name of the provisioned Collector/Indexer host to be lowercase (LMST-640)
- Prevented .tmp files from remaining in the LFMT file transfer temp directory when two applications have the same log file name (LMST-708)
- Added a configuration option to extend the file stream transfer timeout (LMST-693)
- Fixed file copy issues between Linux partitions (LMST-654)
- Fixed null pointer exception that can occur if a provisioned host object did not have a defined IP address (LMST-650)
- Delete or rename the old Collector directory.
- Install the new version of the Collector to the same directory as the previous location.
- Run the database upgrade scripts for version 8.5.101.xx of LFMT included in the utilities directory of the Collector’s install location
- LFMT Package 8.5.100.00 contains LFMT Client release 8.5.100.03, LFMT Collector release 8.5.1000.05, Workbench Agent release 8.5.100.04, and LFMT Indexer release 8.5.100.03.
- Collector no longer leverages RSYNC over an SSH connection for collection requests. All collection requests are completed via a TCP connection to the 8.5.1 Workbench Agent. This removes the need for public-key authentication to hosts and also removes the need for deploying Cygwin on Windows application hosts.
- Added support for collecting from multiple file paths for a single application
- Added support for collection from SIP Server multi-thread logs (via x-sip-log SIP Server configuration option)
- Added ability to raise alarms to the Management Framework for failed collections attempts
- Collector will now refuse collection if the local used hard disk exceeds a configurable threshold
- Added support for maintaining a history of circular logging files (filename.1.log, filename.2.log, etc)
- Added support for configuring the cipher suite used for secure connections to the application host
- Now using the exposed “default” port instead of the “messaging” port for connections from the LFMT Client to the LFMT Collector (LMST-586)
- Support for concatenated values in the log/all property (i.e. stdout, network, etc) (LMST-414)
When provisioning the Collector within Genesys Administrator or Genesys Administrator Extension, the default template name of “LFMT_Collector” must be used. The Workbench Agents white-list the applications that are allowed to connect to the agent by comparing the name of the template
- LFMT Build 8.5.000.02 contains LFMT Client release 8.5.000.23, LFMT Collector release 8.5.000.28, and LFMT Indexer release 8.5.000.30.
- LFMT Collector now supports Oracle database connections using service names (LMST-385)
- LFMT Collector schedules now display the correct “next runtime” after application restart (LMST-369)

- LFMT Collector now properly reconnects to Oracle databases. (LMST-329)
- LFMT Collector now stops collections when less than 500MB is available on CLS. (LMST-330)
- LFMT Collector now properly updates Next Run Times. (LMST-331)
- LFMT Collector now correctly deletes log file packages when expiration time is met. (LMST-334)
