Beginning in LogViewPlus v2.4, we introduced support for data stores in LogViewPlus. A data store is simply any non-file based store which may contain log entries. Currently, we support the following data stores:
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.
Support for additional data stores including, SysLog, ETW and UDP broadcasts is coming soon.
You can configure or edit data stores in the File Systems -> Data Stores configuration.
The complete list of all known data sources. Double click on a data source to modify the connection details.
The reorder commands on the right of the screen can be used to move the selected data source configuration up or down in the configured data source list. This controls the display order in the LogViewPlus file browser.
The add command will display a drop down of all of the data source types currently supported by LogViewPlus. Selecting one of these data sources will open the appropriate new configuration dialog.
When cloning a data source connection LogViewPlus will open the currently selected configuration. You can then make changes to the data source configuration and save your changes as a new connection.
The edit command opens the data source configuration form for the currently selected configuration. Saving changes will overwrite the current data source settings.
The delete command can be used to permanently remove the currently selected data source configuration.
