Tail and Grep log files with ease.

Sometimes the most important log entries are also the most recent. LogViewPlus gives you real-time log file monitoring with advanced search.

LogViewPlus helps you tail and grep the most recent log entries. (1:25)

There is a good reason why Tail and Grep are standard tools in every developer's toolbox. These programs are great at helping you manage your log files. LogViewPlus does an even better job because it transforms log files into meaningful data. Viewing log files in LogViewPlus will unlock a new level of functionality way beyond tail and grep.

Tail in Windows done right!

LogViewPlus processes real-time log file updates through functionality similar to the Unix 'tail' command which tracks log entries as they are written to the log file. This means you immediately see the new log entries in your log viewer. No need to mess around with a refresh button. Tail log files in windows like a pro. No command line required.

Tail Log Files from Anywhere

LogViewPlus includes built in support for technologies like SFTP, FTP, SCP, and SSL as well as mapped drives and Samba shares. Because the world is full of networks and often the log files you need do not exist on your local machine. Now you can read and tail all of your log files in Windows without starting a telnet session.

Tail log files from anywhere.

Merge Log Files

With LogViewPlus, you can open as many log files as you need and press a button to combine them. Merged log file entries are automatically sorted by date so the information appears to be written by a single process. Merging log files can give you greater insight into how multiple processes are interacting with each other.

Quick Data Filters

Filtering log files is better than searching because filters can be chained. For example, you can narrow your log file down to a particular thread and then search just within that thread. Filters can also be updated automatically while tailing the log file. This is similar to tail and grep, but completely redesigned for Windows.
