Introduction:
Need to monitor for specific strings in a log using the logmon probe and add these strings to the UIM database so reports can be generated based on the values found in the log. 
Question:
Can QoS definitions be created and QoS messages collected where the QoS value is a non-numeric value?
Environment:
Any UIM release
Answer:
The current UIM design only supports defining/collection numeric QoS values.
It is not possible to define or collect QoS messages where the value is a string or any other non-numeric value.
