BES log viewer

Hi,

I'm looking for a free log viewer to look at the daily BES logs. I have tried SMS trace which is great, but for some reason it can't open my logs when they're too big (MTLBES_MAGT_01_xxxxxxx.txt) (125MB). I want a log viewer that can highlight, filter, etc. Because using notepad is quite time consumming when looking for specific events.

Thanks for your suggestions

Re: BES log viewer

Re: BES log viewer

Notepad++ is also quite handy: http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm

Re: BES log viewer

Thanks to both of you, but what I'm looking for is to filter in the log. For example if I want to see the mailflow of a particular user named paul smith with an email adress p.smith@domain.com I want to filter out everything else from the log. That way I'll see only things pertaining to Paul Smith. With "SMStrace.exe" I can do that perfectly, the problem is this program don't seem able to handle large files and since my BES logs are about 150MB there is a problem.

 

Thanks,

Re: BES log viewer

This is my favourite tool for tailing ligfiles and you can highlight the user rather than strip out the noise of other users. Which is handy as sometimes some of the lines may not contain x@x.com but relate to your users pin.

It is free the other one is.. Ultra Edit which I am not so keen on as it is at a cost!

 

Beartail taught me a lot about deploying applications OTA just by sitting and watching what the policy logfile churns out!!

 

Great tool!
