The Event Message Browser is dedicated to the browsing of event history files. With it, you will be able to open event log file generated by the Event manager and display event messages.
A rich graphical interface allows you to filter the event messages to display. The browser interface is a direct Plug-in.
Among the filtering features, you can select the event message from a date range, from a specific file, containing two specific strings of characters, by level, by time stamp and date, by agent source name or address.
The list of displayed event message or a selection of them can be exported in a CSV format. A fine search could be done again on that file.
Overview of the user interface:
Start the event Message Browser Plug-In, choose the Tools option from the menu and Events bowser option.
