All information in the log files is contained as binary data. As a result, the log files are protected against manipulation and are very space-saving. New log files are created regularly after 24 hours and when the process server starts. If a log file becomes larger than 256 KB, a new file is also started. The log viewer can display this binary data in the log files and save it individually as a CSV file. If you want to convert all *.elf files to CSV format, this can also be done via the command line.
The following example converts all log files (*.elf) from a directory into files in CSV format using a batch file. To do this, follow these steps:
- Download the zip file (Download).
- Unpack the included batch file into the desired log directory.
- Open file for editing.
- Adapt the path of the LOGPATH variable at Set LOGPATH= to your directory structure.
- Adjust the path of the ELVISLOGVIEWERPATH variable at Set ELVISLOGVIEWERPATH= to your directory structure.
- Save the file and run it by double-clicking.
The CSV files are created in the same directory as the *.elf file.
