Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

You can now have the check logwatch.ec - Event Console forwarding of logfiles - monitor the list of forwarded logfiles. This is enabled by setting "monitoring_logfilelist" to True in the checks parameter dictionary. WATO shows this as a new check box Warn if list of forwarded logfiles changes in the rule set Logwatch Event Console Forwarding.

During inventory the check remembers the list of currently present logfiles that should be forwarded to the Event Console. If that list changes at any time later then the check goes to WARN and displays the missing/exceeding logfiles. Re-inventorize the check in order to acknowledge the new list.
