  • Re: New GUI tool for MS Log Parser, Log Parser Lizard

    Mar 21, 2012 12:36 PM|lizardlabs|LINK

    Hi thongsai

    Recently we have released Log Parser Lizard v2.5. This is the list of new features:

    Log Parser Lizard 2.5.0

    • Conditional column format (color, font, size, image, etc). For instance, you can set the condition to change color of the errors in red, warnings in yellow or to highlight the field if it contains some string.
    • Store queries in SQL Server database for easily share among users and computers in organization (also for backups, auditing and everything that db storage allows). While using local file storage, when a user saves a query, another user has to recreate the same query if he/she wants to use it. With Log Parser Lizard you may save queries in SQL Server database to easily share queries between users. You can setup the database from Settings dialog box (This feature is only available for company license holders )
    • New and improved Excel style row filtering
    •  Ability to add columns with Excel style formulas (with most Excel functions)
    • Support for exporting in Excel 2007 format (more than 65365 rows).
    • Small user interface improvements and minor bug fixes.

    You can download the latest version from Lizard Labs web site http://www.lizard-labs.net/log_parser_lizard.aspx

    You can use direct download link (currently on the right side of the page) if you don’t like to tweet. We are giving the product for free, but we will appreciate all support from the users including mentioning Log Parser Lizard on social networks so even more user will hear about it and hopefully find it useful (therefor make it worthy for future development).

    We are already planning features for version 3.0. Our goal here is to keep building this MS Logparser GUI and make it even better. I hope it is and will be the best Log Parser GUI available for download, with most features and least bugs :) So I invite everyone to send us feedbacks on the site (above URL) or over e-mail with ideas and feature requests for future development of Log Parser Lizard.


    You asked how to get user input for queries. To prompt for user input you can use inline Visual Basic .Net code (available in v 2.1 or above). For instance, this query will prompt for input of EventID:

    select top 100 * from Application where
    EventID=<% return Microsoft.VisualBasic.Interaction.InputBox("Please enter Event ID","Event ID","1053") %>


    Unfortunately I can’t help you with your troubles with Exchange logs since we have no experience with them. You can send us a small sample log on e-mail and we will see what we can do about it.


    P.S. The support portal and FAQ pages again will be available very soon. Currently we are in process of changing VPS provider since we were not satisfied with services of previous one (we lost a lot of data during hardware failure).

    Best regards.
