Hi Andres,

In fact, the alert.debug is very helpfull. There are a lot of good information there. But, i still have the same problem. I mean, there are no simple way to connect a event collected in fast.log with a event in alert-debug.log. I can change my script to parser alert-debug instead fast.log. I would not do that because there are a lot of other scripts using data from fast.log.

I'm still searching a way. Maybe match atrributes from each processed event with the alert-debug.log. It is not elegant, either pratical.

You could try the alert-debug.log and see if that content (human
readable) matches your need and also contains the relevant event infos.
