Log Parser

A command-line tool that processes and enhances RTI Connext and RTI Connext Micro log messages, making it easier to debug applications.

⇠ Back to All RTI LABS Projects


What does it do? 

RTI Log Parser is a command-line tool that processes and clarifies RTI Connext and RTI Connext Micro log messages, making it easier to debug applications.

Connext output and debugging log files both provide extensive detail about the execution of a DDS application, but they are not optimized for human comprehension. And while error and warning messages are easier to understand, they do not provide all of the details that a user may need to pinpoint the source of an issue.
