change to promtail yaml config not reflected in grafana/loki
I've made a revision to a /usr/local/bin/config-promtail.yaml file on server a, something like this:
- job_name: error_file static_configs: - targets: - localhost labels: job: bridge_errors __path__: home/user/logs/new_error_file.json host: server_a
where 'new_error_file.json' used to be 'old_error_file.json'. This is sending the logs to Loki/Grafana running on server b. I could see the old error file(s) in the Loki data adapter in Grafana just fine, but then updated the file name in the yaml config, as above, restarted the Promtail service and...nothing. The new files are not showing up. I can check the status of the service and can see " level=info msg="Seeked..." entries for the new file, so it's working at least as far as the Promtail service in concerned. Any ideas?? I'm a bit new to Grafana (like, only a couple days' in), so am probably missing something?? Thanks for any assistance!
