Adiscon LogAnalyzer 3.3.0 beta is out

Adiscon's open source log analysis frontend LogAnalyzer has grown with some exciting new features. Most importantly, report generation speed has been much increased. This was made possible via tighter integration of the report logic with the actual log source (database or file). As a result, all reports are generated in considerably less time and require far fewer system resources to complete. Along the same lines, Adiscon LogAnalyzer now offers suggestions for indexing database sources. If it finds room for improvement, new indexes are automatically suggested. This results in overall improved speed throughout the application.

Also, finally a long-due user interface improvement has been made: to access the reporting feature, users needed to access the admin panel. This was kind of well-hidden and cumbersome. In 3.3.0, reports are directly available from Adiscon LogAnalyzer's main panel. With this change, some users may even discover the reporting feature for the first time. The screenshot below gives you a sneak preview of the new interface.


Best of all, the new version has brought some under-the-hood improvements that we will utilize in the future to generate some really exciting new reports. Stay tuned, there is much more to come...

And finally let me say that work with the LogAnalyzer team to improve integration into rsyslog and the Adiscon's Windows logging components. We are trying very hard to provide an easy to use, integrated solution.

Rainer,

How will this tool handle XML encoded messages such as Healthcare's IHE ATNA?

Rainer said...

Hi John, currently, there is no native support for XML streams. I think this would probably not be too hard to add. Do you see value for this tool in your environment?

John Moehrke said...

Well of course I see this as a need in healthcare. And a need for your current functionality + IHE ATNA.

Interesting... Can you provide me a sample data set? I'll talk to Andre, who leads Adiscon LogAnalyzer development, and see where we can head to.

John Moehrke said...

I got some samples. How can I get them to you? I have your e-mail address but think that is not right anymore.

Rainer said...

Thanks, I got the data set. I have passed it to Andre. We will see how to make most sense out of it. I'll keep you posted.

Hi Guys;

I have started using logAnalyzer within my company, a big thanks for this wonderful Tool. I have a question from one of our Java development team who want to see the entire SAML or java message rather than the line by line message, is there a way of enforcing this? I.e. to output the whole SAML2.0 or Java message?

Busy at the moment...

Some might have noticed that I am not as active as usual on the rsyslog project . As this seems to turn out to keep at least for the upcomi...
