Hi All,
I can look at eventviewer for alerts registered on my SQL server 2008  or use xp_readerrorlog to retrieve lines of error log.

But I am after something else.
We have a central linux log monitoring system which can process text files and raise alerts for issues. I wish to move SQL server log files (text files) to a linux node & process them there as we do for Oracle , Websphere & some others.

I am looking for list of all SQL server warning,error log files and keywords to search for to locate issues.

Many Thanks

View the SQL Server error log by using SQL Server Management Studio or any text editor. By default, the error log is located at Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.n\MSSQL\LOG\ERRORLOG and ERRORLOG.n files

Hi Ppratima_mcs,
I am aware of this file and in fact xp_readerrorlog return those details.

The question I have , is that the only log file  available under SQL Server for any kind of errors.
What kind of keywords should be searched (using grep to say there is a warning or an error.

Many Thanks
