I am looking for advice from the Windchill expert community on how you interrogate log files. For instance, I would like to take a log file, search for the string 'error ' in the content, and then eliminate lines which contain a pattern for unimportant strings. This should parse the log so that it only contains the lines of information which may contain notable errors. I currently only have Windows 7 text editors in my toolbox.
I am looking for the following type of advice.
1 - What is your method for interrogating logs to find relevant 'errors'?
2 - Is it possible to create macros in Microsoft word to filter out unimportant lines?
3 - Are there other text editors I should be considering which might make the task of interrogating logs easier (preferably free)?

Very usefull for debuging. You can highlight some Keywords, filter and searching.
We use Splunk here. It indexes all the different logs within the Windchill environment - Apache, OS, Windchill - and you can even alert on specific keywords inside logs.
