The Red Hat JBoss EAP Insight Pack includes “Quick Searches” so users can create saved searches for a keyword or a series of keywords. You can run the searches at a later time from the Saved Searches pane. The following default searches are included:

  • Common Patterns: These searches are simple or common strings used while looking for different problems such as error, fatal, critical, failure, warning, and so on in the logs.
  • Functional Searches: These searches are specific searches used while looking for specific and detailed data known to impact the functional areas. You can also use these searches to look for specific patterns known to indicate performance or availability issues.

The JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) Server log file contains all the server log messages including the startup messages. It also contains messages from the deployed application.
