Parsing Log Files

LogViewPlus is an unusual application because it does not write log files and therefore has no pre-existing knowledge of the file format it needs to process. LogViewPlus may be able to dynamically determine the format of your log file, but for performance and data flexibility reasons you are almost always better off manually configuring your log parsers.

Log parsers and parser configuration are the subject of this section. If you are new to configuring log parsers we recommend using the Parser Wizard.

If you are already familiar with log parsing, consider jumping ahead to Analyzing Log Files.
