How do the logs indicate a Node or Device Engine restart?

When looking through the Node and Device Engine logs, how can I tell when a Node or Device Engine was restarted?

To determine whether a Node has restarted, examine the AlarmPoint.txt log file, and look for entries that resemble the following:

2008-06-20 09:01:29,397 [xMatters Node-main] INFO - xMatters version 4.1.xxxxx   
2008-06-20 09:01:29,397 [xMatters Node-main] INFO - OS Name: XXXXXXX   
2008-06-20 09:01:29,397 [xMatters Node-main] INFO - OS Version: XXXX   

These entries appear at the start of every log file, indicating that the Node has started. If the entries appear in the middle of a log file, it indicates that the Node has started again. Similar to the Node log entries, the following lines appear at the start of every log file, and indicate that the specified Device Engine has started. If the lines appear in the middle of the log file, they indicate that the Device Engine has restarted:

2008-10-17 12:36:54,916 [xMatters Node-controller-start] WARN - - SMTP: Starting Device Engine   
2008-10-17 12:36:55,056 [xMatters Node-controller-start] WARN - - SMTP: Started  
2008-10-17 12:36:55,291 [xMatters Node-controller-start] WARN - - SMTP: Update with new settings

These lines are logging if the Global Configuration settings are set to Normal or Detailed logging. Each Device Engine writes its own set of log messages when it starts or restarts.
