Standalone Log Analysis Utility
By Torben Hein -Oracle on Sep 30, 2013
I just had a comment from Development on one of our older posts.
The Log file Analysis Tool that was introduced in EPM 188.8.131.52.000 ( read post here ) has now been made stand-alone.
Why would that be important?
Because: "You can use this standalone log analysis utility to analyze logs from any 11.1.1.x or 11.1.2.x deployments. It will run on EPM servers or non-EPM servers."
It is available as a patch via MOS under the number 17425397
As of the readme, the prerequisites are fairly lightweight and not surprising:
The download is just over 2 MB and it includes the readme file. This will not only tells you how to install and use the utility, it also contains the list of available commands.
The comment on the blog requesting a backport was posted early in September 2013 (our first mention in May).
The answer from Development came in on September 25th 2013. Less than a month to get this done!
Thanks to Fuad and Maurice for making this happen so quickly.
