Log File Management Tool (LFMT) Package 8.5.101.00 contains Workbench Agent release 8.5.101.03, LFMT Indexer release 8.5.101.00, LFMT Collector release 8.5.101.05, and LFMT Client release 8.5.101.05.
- Added configuration option to the provisioned host object to define the local binding interface (LMST-645)
- Improved collection by returning only log files within a directory matching the application’s log file prefix (LMST-652)
- Fixed an issue with collection of log4j style logs (.log, .log.1, .log.2, etc) (LMST-651)
If you have existing Workbench Agents installed on your remote hosts (version 8.5.100.xx/8.5.000.xx), they must be uninstalled before proceeding with the installation of the 8.5.101.xx Workbench Agent. The new 8.5.101 Workbench Agent is backwards compatible with all Workbench versions and is also used for the file transfers for the Log File Management Tool. For LFMT, the 8.5.101.05 LFMT Collector and 8.5.101.05 LFMT Client must be installed. When provisioning the agents within Genesys Administrator or Genesys Administrator Extension, the default template name of CC_Agent must be used. When the LFMT Collector populates the list of available agents within the environment, it will search for all applications provisioned with a template named CC_Agent. A Mass Deployer tool is available to push the Workbench Agent to your application hosts. The Mass Deployer tool is bundled with the Log File Management Tool Collector. The Mass Deployer tool can be found within the utilities directory of the LFMT Collector installation directory.
- LFMT Package 8.5.100.00 contains Workbench Agent release 8.5.100.04, LFMT Client release 8.5.100.03, LFMT Collector release 8.5.1000.05, and LFMT Indexer release 8.5.100.03.
- The Workbench Agent is now used for transferring files to the Log File Management Tool (version 8.5.1). The transfer takes place between the Workbench Agent and the Log File Management Tool Collector via a TCP connection with TLS support. The use of the agent for file transfers replaces the need for sending files over SSH via Rsync.
- Added support for file transfer connection pooling between the Agent and the LFMT collector
- There are no enhancements or updates to existing Workbench Agent functionality

The Mass Deployer tool can be found within the utilities directory of the LFMT Collector installation directory.
