This will often make log analysis and problem determination difficult and time consuming. The Log Analyzer is a standalone RCP application, offered under the Test & Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) Project that provides a single point for analyzing log files generated in different formats. It provides the ability to import log files from local or remote locations to analyze the events using the same look and feel. The imported log files can be correlated using a customizable correlation scheme to determine the root cause of a problem. The log files can also be matched against a symptom database with a set of pre-known symptoms to determine solutions to problems that have previously been encountered. The Log Analyzer’s features have been designed to tolerate the customized logging output of any component in a system. It is a light weight and ideal solution for administrators that are often required to examine a large set of log files to determine the root cause of a problem.

Liz Dancy is a Software Developer at IBM Tivoli. She is currently working on the User Interface and the Automated GUI Recorder component for TPTP. Miss Dancy holds both an Honours Bachelor of Computing and a Master's of Science in Computer Science from Queen's University. Her Master's thesis work involved designing and implementing a system which automatically re-architects Java source code with respect to tunable system parameters. She has recently published this work and continues to pursue her interests in autonomic computing, source transformation and aspect-oriented programming.
