LogView: Visualizing Event Log Clusters
Event logs or log files form an essential part of any network management and administration setup. While log files are invaluable to a network administrator, the vast amount of data they sometimes contain can be overwhelming and can sometimes hinder rather than facilitate the tasks of a network administrator. For this reason several event clustering algorithms for log files have been proposed, one of which is the event clustering algorithm proposed by Risto Vaarandi, on which his Simple Log file Clustering Tool (SLCT) is based. The aim of this work is to develop a visualization tool that can be used to view log files based on the clusters produced by SLCT. The proposed visualization tool, which is called LogView, utilizes treemaps to visualize the hierarchical structure of the clusters produced by SLCT. Our results based on different application log files show that LogView can ease the summarization of vast amount of data contained in the log files. This in turn can help to speed up th...
