After a log is successfully added to XpoLog Center, it is recommended in the case of multiple files per log, to validate that the log files have been sorted properly. Also, when pattern(s) have been applied to the log, it is advisable to check that log records have been parsed as expected. Otherwise, some searches and filters that are run on the log may not return results.

Files List Validation

For logs that have multiple files, it is important to ensure that the files are sorted properly.

To validate the log file list:
  1. In the Log Viewer, open the log file to validate.
  2. In the top left panel, open Quick Filter, and select the Files List tab.
    The files in the selected log are listed.
  3. Check that the files are sorted in the correct order.
    If not, return to Advanced Settings > Files Attributes, and select an appropriate value for Sort physical files by (see Configuring Advanced Log Settings).

Pattern Validation

The following procedure describes the recommended way of verifying that patterns have been applied correctly on a log.

If you have any doubts regarding the pattern configuration, you can use a simpler pattern for verification, such as date and string. If you still have any doubts, contact our support team to review or recommend a suitable configuration.

To validate log file contents:
  1. In the Log Viewer, open the log file to validate.
  2. Browse to the beginning of the log and verify that all records are parsed as expected (forward parsing).
  3. Browse to the end of the log and verify that all records are parsed as expected (backwards parsing).
  4. Open the files list (see section above), and click each of the files.
    XpoLog jumps to the first record of each selected file. Verify that all records in each file are parsed as expected.
  5. Run a few test filters (string or date) to make sure the data is returned as expected.
