Log Viewer Pro is a portable software program for the Microsoft Windows operating system that is able to load and display log files. Its main benefits are the low memory usage and support for log files with a size of over 4 Gigabytes. There are obviously other features and options which will be discussed in the following article. Log Viewer Pro will work best with log files that store each entry in their own line. It can load pretty much any document however but loses most of its functionality when doing so.
It is possible to load multiple log files into the log viewer which can then be looked at and switched to in the tabbed interface on top of the application. Log Viewer Pro will automatically highlight lines that contain warnings, information or errors to make the identification easier for the user. It is possible to define additional lines that get highlighted automatically using regular expressions.
The application can switch to different encodings like ANSI, OEM, Unicode LE, Unicode BE, supports line numbers, text wrapping and a search that supports basic search phrases but also regular expressions. The log files can be automatically reloaded if that is required. Another interesting feature are bookmarks which can be created to jump to specific locations in a log file.
Log Viewer Pro is a free for non commercial use log analyzer for the Windows operating system.
