Described by many as a graphical user interface for Microsoft Log Parser, Log Parser Lizard is actually an excellent query tool in its own right. It offers you an attractive and intuitive window for both Log Parser’s results and any other SQL query you wish to perform on massive text-based data, regardless of its size and complexity. Its flexible report designer adds even more to its high-end viewing options.
There is no doubt that Microsoft’s Log Parser is the standard for SQL queries in the Windows arena, but it is equally true to say that it’s far from being the most user-friendly query tool. Here is where Log Parser Lizard comes into play, offering you a ribbon-based tabbed interface to design and perform your own queries away from the Spartan command-line interface provided by Microsoft. Then you can view the results as a spreadsheet (complete with a wide range of tools and features), as a pie chart or as an attractive report that you can even design yourself. It also allows you to build your own dashboards with all the necessary data fields, arguments, values, and series, and export data to PDF or Excel documents. And the best thing is that you won’t have to design and build the same query all over again from scratch the next time you need it, as – unlike MS Log Parser – you can save your queries for later use and tweak this or that parameter to fine-tune your searches whenever needed. more
