Log Entries Graph

Log Entries Graph

The graph log entries dialog can be used to display graphs representing the log entries of a given log file or filter.


Graph Type

1. Graph Type

LogViewPlus supports two primary graph types. The first shows log entries over time. This graph is helpful for giving you a quick feel for how your log entries are distributed over time. The second graph type shows the distribution of values for individual columns. This type of graph can be useful for answering questions such as what is the ratio of debug log entries to warning log entries.

Navigating between the two types of graphs is done with the tabs at the top of the graph log entries dialog.


Graph Area

2. Graph Area

The graph area shows the currently selected graph drawn according to the graph settings discussed below. Note that hovering over the graph will display information about the currently selected data point.



3. Timeline

By default the timeline of a graph will be large enough to include all log entries in a view. However, you can use the handle to the left and right of the timeline to narrow the graph down to an area that you find more interesting. The Filter Range command (discussed below) will allow you to create a new DateTime filter from the selected timeline range.



4. Settings

Graph settings can be used to change how a graph is displayed. The graph settings are specific to the type of grafts selected. Graph settings may allow you to change the graph style, unit size, source, or grouping. We recommend experimenting with graph settings when determining how to best display your data.


Filter Range

5. Filter Range

Allows you to create a DateTime filter for a selected timeline range. This is useful when you want to show only the log entries that were created during the currently selected time range.
