Proactively monitoring SPS 2010 and MOSS

I was recently introduced to what is now a critical tool. The ULS Viewer http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/ULSViewer



The ULSViewer tool performs various actions against the data from ULS log files in order to better analyze it. ULSViewer allows the user to: 



  • Highlight data of importance to the user on the fly

  • Bookmark log entries

  • Append logs to other logs in order to track trends

  • Hide unimportant data

  • Only view critical log entries by sorting data by severity

  • Write rules to prompt the user when certain events occur

  • View your data in a spreadsheet instead of the text file ULS generates

  • Monitor remote machines logs that are running ULS services

  • Open multiple logs at the same time in order to compare log files.

  • Open logs files from multiple machines at the same time.
