Tiny Log Monitor Publisher's description
Small application for monitoring log files stored on network or locally
Tiny Log Monitor is a small application for monitoring log files stored on network or locally. Its basic purpose is to watch Apache server log files during test or development, but it can be used with any other log file as well (e.g. it can monitor your own logs).
If you are a developer, you may find it useful in monitoring multiple log files of your applications where you expect exceptions, errors, or you just need extensive information aside from debug log.
This application is not the only log monitoring software available, there are many advanced tools for this purpose, but that also involve certain learning curve in order to be used properly and are often not suitable for tiny development investments. Tiny Log Monitor or TLM comes as a small package that you can quickly set up on any Windows machine (with .NET framework) to watch logs of your app, server, services and whatnot in real-time.
In most scenarios, you will want to parse up relevant log data by using multiple RegEx scripts and watch only what is currently important to your analysis. You have a number of command line options to control buffer size of monitored logs and application behaviour, so you can watch several log files simultaneously and quickly change which regex set is used to parse each of those files without causing application stress and unresponsiveness.
Key features include
* Live monitoring of multiple log files
* Separates appended part of the log file from the whole file
* Regular expressions support
* Ability to use sets of multiple regex scripts and to change active set with One Click
* Variable buffer size for monitored files (e.g. monitor only last 1 megabyte of the file)
* Editing regex scripts while they are being used
System Requirements:.NET Framework 2.0 or higher
