Rapidly analyze errors thanks to detailed data access.

Operlog Tools offer powerful functions for analyzing your online and archived data stock via a simple-to-use interface. These functions allow you, among many other things, to evaluate serious production errors.

This is made possible by comprehensive selection and filter criteriathat you can configure for individual use or share with your team to  provide all contributing parties with a unified case view.

Narrow Down Root Causes

At the onset of troubleshooting an error, individual suspicious or critical messages, message parts or jobs are generally known. However, very often it is of equal importance to learn what happened right before or after an event.

The Operlog Tools provide you with a selection option that proves highly useful to your analysis as it allows you to define a time frame in seconds. The system then shows messages that occurred before and after the event for this interval. This unique function in particular simplifies the task of analyzing errors.
