Data Sources

Data Sources

Beginning in LogViewPlus v2.4, we introduced support for data sources in LogViewPlus.  A data source is simply any non-file based source which may contain log entries.  Currently, we support the following data sources:

1.  Databases - LogViewPlus currently supports SQL Server, Oracle, My SQL, PostgreSql and SqLite databases.  If you have an additional database you would like to connect to that has a .Net adapter, please contact support for assistance.

2.  Windows Events - Read directly from a local or remote Windows Event Log.

3.  Syslog - Reads events from a Syslog server.

4.  ETW Events - Reads an Event Tracing for Windows stream.

5.  UDP - Reads events from a UDP broadcast stream.

Once configured, data source log files will be accessible through the Log Explorer.

Do you have an idea for an additional data source?  Contact us and let us know.  We are always looking for ways to improve LogViewPlus.
