Opening Large Log Files

Aug 17, 2012 at 2:03 PM

I have a 49 GB log file and it is taking a very long time to load in Log Expert (it hasn't loaded yet). Is there any option that I can flip to optimize this process? I really just need to see the last 1000 lines of this file............

LogExpert has problems with very large files (also see here).

I would recommend BareTail if you really need to deal with multi-GB log files. (I also would recommend log file splitting... ;) )
