Tutorial: Log Analysis with Exago

« back to Presentations Download Presentation Download

As a developer or support engineer you have probably spent enormous energy and time manually analyzing log files, trying to find out what went wrong, when and why.

Using Exago, now you can automatically parse and process log files, and check them against an abstract model of the system. In case of failure, it will report the abstract state where the error occurred, and the events that led to the point of failure. In this 60 minute tutorial we will cover, how to: specify relations between log files and their properties, provide the abstract model of the system: either manually providing it based on system documentation or generate it automatically based on example logs use the results to reproduce and repair the error. In brief, this tool automates most of the daunting and tiresome task of manually inspecting log files, tasks that you would probably pass to the interns.
