You can now configure whether the context of the logfiles should be sent too, if a ok/warn/crit logline was detected within the logfile.

The context includes lines starting with '.' (default context) or 'I' (ignored lines).

A new option nocontext has been introduced for the logfiles section in the check_mk.ini file.

check_mk.ini
[logfiles]
# The following textfile will not report any context info (nocontext option)
textfile = nocontext C:\tmp\memo.udf

# Set patterns for defined textfile
warn = *overdue*
ok = *mail sent*

If you simply prepend the parameter nocontext to the actual path (or path pattern), all files matching this pattern will exclude any context info.
