“My biggest pain was trying to follow a thread through multiple log files.”
Here's a better way to view structured text files.
What is it?
Log File Robot is a desktop application for viewing log files. Drop a text file onto it and see the contents displayed like a spreadsheet. Count, find, highlight and filter on strings or regexes. Query using SQL. Export to a CSV file.
Why use it?
- Because you are a support engineer or developer or anyone who needs to quickly and easily browse or search structured text files such as logs and CSV files
- Because you need to view, search and process multi-gigabyte text and CSV files that may be too big for your text editor or spreadsheet application to cope with
- Because you don't want to setup and maintain a log collection/storage/search technology stack—you just want to click on a file and easily view and search it
- Because you are viewing sensitive data that must stay on your own machine
Who am I?
Hi! My name is Anthony Hay and I'm a computer programmer.
At Digital Research I wrote BIOSes, GEM device drivers and DR DOS command line utilities and at Centennial Software I wrote the cross-platform client agent that ran on millions of Windows, OS X, Linux and Unix computers. I've looked at many log files.
“Anthony developed some great software during his time at Centennial.” - John Spinks, CTO, Centennial Software
“Anthony was an important part of the small world-class software team that created DR DOS. He is an outstanding software engineer who produces code of the very highest quality.” - Howard Kornstein, Director of Marketing Europe, Digital Research
Now I'm working on Log File Robot in the beautiful county of Wiltshire, England.
