Dynamics Software’s Log Viewer / Analyzer supports many types of log files.
For some log types, though, pre-processing might be needed to parse them correctly.
This applies to the Windows Event Log. One reason for pre-processing it is that the timestamp is not the first field. So it needs to be either stripped or swapped with the timestamp field. This is fairly easy with Windows tools.
The figure below shows how the Windows Event Log Analysis is possible after the pre-processing.
The question here is, should we add the Windows Event Log Analysis functionality as standard? Is there a real use case for that?
