Recently someone reached out to me with an issue where the Log Insight agent was not collecting files that it should. I quickly uncovered the issue and thought that others may experience it so I figured I would discuss it.
Log Insight allows for powerful and complex java-based regular expression queries. The Log Insight documentation briefly touches on regular expression examples. I would like to dig a little deeper. In this post, I would like to talk about all of the different regular expressions that are possible using Log Insight and give a few examples as well.
I have not talked about Log Insight querying in a long time primarily because it has not changed. One thing I touched about in my query building series was suffix searching, or put another way searching for a keyword that ends with a fixed keyword.

A great new addition to Log Insight 3.3 is the introduction of a query API. While the initial documentation for the feature has not been posted yet, it is in progress and should be available soon. In the meantime, I have included the latest information so you can start leveraging the API today. Read on to learn more!
