XpoLog Center Also includes Enterprise Log Viewer and Data Collection engine. XpoLog can be deployed on J2EE App servers as log management solution, in clustered/distributed environment for monitoring or as problems resolution tool.
Some of the new features:
- Execute SQL on logs, run queries against log files.
- Remote Access to logs between XpoLog’s is faster then SSH.
- Access Logs over SSH
- Open logs from ZIP archives without extracting the files
- Dynamic Context support for J2EE deployments
- SQL rules monitoring over log files and configuration.

- New Release - Log Analysis for Java Apps by gal berg on May 17 2010 07:12 EDT
Built on top of open source or completely proprietary?
Any reason for commercial, proprietary vs. free, open source, defacto standard Log4j or 1.4 logging?
I don't see if the product supports log4j or jdk1.4 logging. the log4j gui is already a pretty robust log management tool, so not sure what advantages this product has. anyone know?
Basically this is not just a viewer, it is an enterprise solution to manage and to produce reports from logs. Too bad, it is not open source.
If I want to generate nice reports, I might as well save the logs to Oracle, Db2 or Sql Server and use a nice reporting tool. Or better yet, use the OLAP features and use OLAP reports.
XpoLog support both log4j and java logging generated file.
After registering you will receive a free license for 5 Logical logs (unlimited number of physical logs).
... and more. With Log4j, you can execute SQL on logs that are written to a database, you can access logs remotely in either a graphical way (Chainsaw) or programmatically (socket network interface). And you can define SQL rules to monitor logging events easily: these are just database SQL triggers which have been available in all major DBMS implementations for years now. So I'm not sure why one would pay for this, aside from the support and CYA aspect (which is admittedly a powerful force).
Its when you enable management, viewing and analysis over existing log files which were not created only with log4j or java logging. it enable access solution to remote servers that are written in COBOL as well as other ancient platforms. Its when you deliver robust infrastructure for existing log files and application along with log access and parsing.
It is when you can run sql queries against one log with inner join to another and the window event viewer. Without careing about the origin of the data.
This system support log4j log files. its not in the same domain of functionality.
Thanks Haim for the clarifications, and congrats to XpoLog on the release. Good luck ;)
