Automate Alert for Beacon Checks

I am trying to automated alerts if anything goes wrong with Beacon. 

Could you guys please share the checklist of logs and locations?

Thanks for your time in advance!

Log files on beacons are primarily found in the following two locations:

  1. Subdirectories under C:\ProgramFiles\Flexera Software\Compliance\Logging\. Different subdirectories found here correspond to different components that make up the beacon.
  2. The C:\Windows\Temp\ManageSoft\ directory (or users' %TEMP%\ManageSoft\ directories if processes are run under a named user account rather than SYSTEM). Logs found here are from components that the beacon shares with the FlexNet inventory agent.

Hi @ChrisG 

Thanks for sharing the informatiom!

I am looking for exact/specific details so I can build a script to catch Log errors. 

Do you know what all services, regkeys, log errors I should include while building a script to automate Beacon Alert ?
