Log analysis is important to both troubleshoot and understand network devices behavior.
Tail/less/grep are great tools that can help to filter and search hundreds or thousands lines of logs.
If you prefer a GUI there are a couple of alternatives that can fit well.
For windows users only Log Expert is a great choice with many features but it is not developed since 2012.
Log Expert is a Windows tail program (a GUI replacement for the Unix tail command). LogExpert is free for non-commercial or commercial use.
An alternative multi platform choice is _glogg _that is under active development:
glogg is a multi-platform GUI application to browse and search through long or complex log files. It is designed with programmers and system administrators in mind. _glogg_ can be seen as a graphical, interactive combination of _grep_ and less.
Happy log analysis!comments powered by Disqus
