Project Description
View, search and filter SharePoint ULS log files directly from within Central Administration.

The project uses the Starznet WSS / MOSS Build Tasks to create a deployable solution (WSP) that can be added to a server farm. This installs and activates the feature and deploys the necessary dependent files - no need to manually copy files to any directories.

Use STSADM -o addsolution -filename PATH TO StarznetLogViewer.wsp to add the solution, then go into Central Administration solution management to deploy the solution.

Once the solution has been installed and deployed, look under the Logging and Reporting menu group for the Log File Viewer link:

This will take you to the view page, listing all the ULS log files available for further viewing. Select a file and choose View File in the drop down menu to view the contents of the file:

Viewing the contents of the file is straightforward, and benefits from all features of the SharePoint data grid, e.g. filtering, sorting, paging:
