Abstract

Communications Log (COMLOG) or Systems Log (SYSLOG) electronic notebook type of programs are used to store text data that describe activity against a processor test machine in an engineering raised floor environment. Design engineers run test cases against test machines and all activity is logged on an on-line system. The activity data can range from a lengthy report of a test result to a short message. The contents are usually text-oriented and without a format. When the data volume becomes immense and diversified, it is very difficult to search a group of related logs from the log history of a particular subject. A technique that addresses this problem is described in the following. (Image Omitted)
