Abstract

Currently, we don't have a handy tool to analyze the application log along with source code and online doc with a high efficiency base. The developer has to switch back and force between the log txt file and IDE to find the specific class and the problem lines. It's time consuming and low efficiecy.

A method to do log-code fast mapping and track.

Current Developer or Level 3 support does not have a handy tool to analyze the log along with source code and online doc. Basically, we are using current log analyzer methods:

Use text editor to view the log


Use log viewer to sort the log by time, thread.

What we are doing now is to open the log, find the doubt points, and then find the class name where the problem occurs. At this point, the developer is eager to see the the source code line that causes the issue. But we still have to open our IDE, and then use some search tool to find the related class and locate the line with the IDE editor to view the details manually. Level 3 support need to use the error code to search in our solution repository manually to find existing solutions. Obviously

Developer wants to jump to where the log entry occurs in the code to see what's happening
Level 3 support want to be redirect to the error description or solution when there's standard error code in the log.

That's why we propose this log-code fast tracking mechanism. It composes of a log-code quick tracking viewer along with a set of process on how to use it.

We'll introduce it's design and technical benefits below:
