Event Log Explorer Concept

In this section:

Workspaces

Computers Tree

Log Views

 

Workspaces

Event Log Explorer has a document-oriented architecture. Event Log Explorer documents are called workspaces. When you start Event Log Explorer first time, it automatically creates an emtpy workspace Untitled.elx.

Worspaces store Computers tree and Opened event log views including windows placement, filters, log loading options, etc). Workspaces don't store Event Log Explorer Preferences. All global options and preferences are stored in the user's registry.

If you maintain a large-scale network, it's a good idea to have different workspaces for different group of servers. To open a certain workspace, use File->Open Workspace command. To save workspace use File->Save Workspace or File->Save Workspace As.

Computers Tree

Computers Tree is designed to provide you with quick access to event logs. You can add any number of computers to the tree and group them for better usability. When you click on the sing near the computer name, Event Log Explorer dispalys all event logs available on this computer - double click on the log opens the event log immediately.

Log Views

Log view is a visual representation of event log or event log file. Log view consist of event list, description box and control toolbar. You can open as many log views as you wish. Depending on the user interface style, log views are presented either as MDI child windows (for multiply document user interface) or as tabs (for tabbed document user interface). Active log view is the topmost log view (for MDI) or the active tab (for TDI).

All main menu commands for event log management apply to active log view only.
