Log entries are not always stored in files. For example, Windows stores log entries in the Windows Event Log. Other examples of data source formats include relational databases, Syslog or UDP messages.
LogViewPlus can handle non-file based log entry stores as data sources - a new concept introduced in LogViewPlus 2.4. Data sources can be configured to appear as a local file in the Log Explorer.
For more information, please see the data source configuration topic.
