Other Features

Log Viewer provides these options from the top of the right pane.

  • Reload—Refreshes the log. You can view logs while they are open for writing.

  • Automatic—Refreshes the log about every 6 seconds, automatically.

  • Resolve addresses—Displays DNS names instead of numeric IP addresses.

    Note: Address resolution may be slow, since it can require multiple DNS requests per address. Results are cached until you close the Log Viewer.

  • Slider for Message Level Control—Filters the messages by Severity level.

    Severe messages are highlighted in red. Warnings are highlighted in yellow.

  • Search—Type a partial search string into the text box to search the message field for matching strings. Log Viewer displays only the results with that string.

    Click the X to clear the text field and view all messages for selected level control.
