Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We have traditionally monitored log messages in system managements mainly with a blacklist, whether the log messages coincide with regular expressions in the blacklist. However, the blacklist can only alert log messages known as failures in advance. On the other hand, there is a log monitoring with a whitelist in order to exclude log messages known as normal in advance from the alerts. We expect it to find failures which have not been known in advance. A whitelist generally contains much more regular expressions than a blacklist, thus it is harder to write regular expressions in the whitelist by human efforts than to write those in the blacklist. Therefore we achieved an automated whitelist generator to reduce human efforts. Since system failures should not be missed, the whitelist should achieve recall ratio of 100%. Thus we propose a whitelist generator which converts numbers to regular expressions, which achieves recall ratio of 100%.
