LogViewPlus processes UDP logs by listening on a port and logging all data received to a local file. The local file can then be opened automatically and parsed as normal.
A friendly name is simply a name for the server it is easy to remember. If a friendly name is not provided, the port number will be used instead.
The name provided will be used to build a URI which can be used to refer to this server. For this reason, the name provided must be URI friendly - it should not contain characters or symbols which are difficult to represent in URI form.
The friendly name given will be used as the file name where UDP data is logged. The name used here will therefore also be used to determine the appropriate parser configuration.
A friendly category is a group name where this server can be categorized. This field is not required.
If you have previously configured a server with a friendly category, this category will be available as a drop-down option. Alternatively you can type a new name into the category text box.
The UDP port where log data is published.
Validates and tests the provided configuration.
Once you have configured your listener, you can use the save command to persist your changes. Once your changes have been saved the configured listener will be immediately available in the folder tree view.
Use the "Cancel" command to return to LogViewPlus without saving your changes.
