THE BAD WAY TO READ LOG

bad

Honestly, how long can you stand reading a text like this before having an headache ?

Regardless your regex’s knowledge, a claustophobic gray window result a bit human not readable for anyone, so imagine the poor guy desperately searching for the error that your boss reported as critical and should be fixed as soon as possible.

You’ll probably have to do with an enterprise application distribuited on many clusters, each one producing its log;
so basically you have to manually estabilish a connection for each server and grep, grep and grep again until the madness comes.. and it’s just 10 AM.

THE GOOD WAY TO READ LOG

good

Admit it, doesn’t things looks clear now, ain’t ?

First off, LOG LEVEL has its own colour, so you’ll immediately notice where there’s an ERROR or just a DEBUG line.

Font and colours are completely customizable to user’s taste giving him the maximum experience in terms of readability.

But there’s a lot more than just cosmetic stuff !

server_nodes

If your enterprise application is distribuited through 4 nodes, you’ll probably have to estabilish 4 ssh connections and watch 4 windows in a display. But your web application is JUST one, so maybe it’s better to display to only one output reader, even more if mapped to an alias name ?

favourites

Customize your favourites server list with adding all the addresses you need, for example set the alias name to:

MY_SERVER_APP

and set the relative address to:

As you can guess, all node’s address of now mapped to an alias named MY_SERVER_MAP;

the next time you need all your application’s log, just type MY_SERVER_APP to the address bar and WIN LOG INSPECTOR will do the magic for you!!
