Our Free Log Viewer is a graphical tool which is not only a handy log reader but also a powerful log analyzer.
Here’s what you get:
- Graphical multi-window interface for all functions. (Text mode is also fully supported)
- Recognition and analysis of Log Patterns.
- Statistical analysis of log files
You can instantly get a “big picture” of your log file, immediately after you opened it. You will see all log events plotted as a function of time. The steeper is the graph, the more intensive the logging was.
In the figure below, you can spot the period of intensive logging – it is marked with black dots.
You can easily zoom in into any time period with the mouse.
“Classic” text view of the log file is available at the same time. Opened as a separate window, it automatically shows all the log events from the time interval that is shown in the main window.
By Log Pattern we understand a combination of start/stop log events and/or some numeric value, or just either of the above. Working with patterns is very convenient in graphical mode.
In the example below, black dots show occurences of the *ERR* Log Pattern. The values specific for each occurence are also written on the graph.
The figure shows the window for defining Log Patterns. In addition, Log Patterns can be conveniently captured directly from the text view window. Log patterns can be named and are automatically saved for future use.
This is yest another functional area where Graphical Mode is beneficial.
