  2. Never seems to work for me[ Go to top ]

    Once again XpoLog is on The Server Side, and once again I try it out. And I get the same result as last time too: it don't work. Basically I just grab the WAR file and throw it into a Tomcat, that is supposed to be supported. Firing it up I try to add some log files and get nothing but exceptions. I suppose it must work for other people. But something as simple as this don't just work, I can't really see myself wasting any more time on it... Oddly enough I am getting an adwords ad from those guys on this article, except the link don't seem to be working either (www.log-viewer.com/LogViewer). It might be a spectacular product, but it is not really building a lot of confidence that a simple war isn't working and the ads are not either ;)
  3. Contact our support[ Go to top ]

    We promise it will work for you. And it is a spactacular. Maybe there is some local problem on your end that we need to address. Please contact us - go to our site and chat with one of our experts and run WebEx if needed, our team will work for you to solve this.
  4. There is a problem with this version on some XML parsing, try to use our standalone version or Tomcat 5.5 We will fix this issue in a day or two, so feel free to check it out in a few days. Sorry about that :-) Be well it is available on http://www.xpolog.com or http://www.log-viewer.com
  5. www.xpolog.net is down[ Go to top ]

    FYI. Until it's back up, can't download the demo. Thanks, Andrew
  6. Quickly installed and added my logs[ Go to top ]

    I used both the standalone and WAR version. It was easy and friendly and I managed to search and monitor my logs. Really cool, I am investigating it now. Found two new erros we did not know about. We are using Tomcat and Weblogic. Maybe you have a problem with Java 6 on Tomcat, try the standalone.
  7. How Much[ Go to top ]

    Though it is not mentioned anywhere this appears to be a commercial product. It is yet another of those product that doesn't put any sort of pricing on their website. Before I decide to evaluate a product I check out the cost. If the price IMHO is over the top I do not go any further. If the price is absent I have to assume it is over the top. If you want your product evaluated then you need to tell me whether I will be spending tens or thousands of dollars.
  8. ...Much[ Go to top ]

    There actually is pricing on the website (you have to go to "compare suite options", and then its on another tab. The problem is the pricing is kinda crazy (imho). $500-$1000 per cpu of machines that generate logs! I really feel like this is a product category that should be better served by the Open Source community. Its a very common problem, and all of the complicated parts of a solution are already open source (Lucene, Log4j file parsers, etc). Does anyone know about an open source (either free, or reasonably support-cost funded) product that fills this centralized log management and search niche?
  9. Re: ...Much[ Go to top ]

    I agree totally. Charging on number of cpus of machines that generate logs is just over the top. We are a medium company, but just in our QA department we would have 5 boxes with 4 duo-core on the front-end and 5 with 12 duo-core cpu's. Do they charge on core as well? For live servers multiply the number of boxes and cpus for 3 at least. It would be around 70 cpus on qa and more than 200 on live. Will they want to charge 270.000 dollars? a 1/4 million? And this hardware configuration is probably much bigger that what I used for my calculation. Well, it's just out of question, I think I will have to continue my search for a log monitoring tool fairly priced.

    I assume, as you are a serious person, you have read the note about envs with more then 5 cpu to directly contact us. That mean that if you are buying 2 cpus is one thing and if you will buy a license for a 100 its an all different issue. i think that after evaluation your find that the value for money makes sense.
