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