Hi all!

I am looking for a tool to analyze the text files written by the flat file tracer listener.
Is there something out there, which uses the template from text formatter to "understand/parse" the written text output?
Also it should be able to filter and search for certain values.

Is there a tool for XML output?

How do you analyze the logging output files?

You might want to look at Microsoft Log Parser:

Thanks for the hint.
I will have a look at it.

Also I have found "The Unofficial Log Parser Support Site"
There are also lots of links to applications using the "Log Parser"
e.g. some UI for the "Log Parser"
