Multiple event logs with side by side comparison



  • I was wondering if anyone knows of some type of software that would allow me to compare about 10 different days (non sequential) with the same time frame. I've been doing side by side event viewer windows but doing that many days takes up too much monitor real estate not very helpful trying to look everywhere at once.



  • Not sure exactly what kind of comparison you are looking for but... what about something like Splunk, ELK or Loggly?



  • @scottalanmiller I'm just looking for something where I can put them all side by side or even match up error events between 10 days and a specific time frame of 11 pm to 9 am the next day. Its just to put an ease to my eyes as between 2 monitors I still have no space & very tiny fonts. I'm trying to figure out what is causing our backups to hang up in the middle of the night to early morning. The past couple of months they've been going for almost 20 hours one day but then the next day like 7.5 hours, & it is sub 400GB. All the backup settings are correct & the task was re-setup just in case. I am matching up all those days with really long backups & seeing if there is anything. If that helps any, & if you have a suggestion that would help me try to get this figured out I'm willing to learn. it.

    Any of those three of those would do that. Is this a one time thing or a regular capability that you want to have?



  • It was going to be a one time thing, but I will be looking into those suggestions tomorrow morning once I get in, right now I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off with Office 365 needing reactivation everywhere. I was able to narrow down for this issue to a couple of culprits for my problems. Thank you Sénior 🙂
