I have to also put in my two cents worth on LogPI. I also found that it was not intuitive in the installation. Also there is a lack of adiquate documentation, especially for the install.

We backup our transaction logs every hour on 99% of our databases to seperate logs. Some of those transaction log backups can get to be 1 to 2 Gb in size. Also a lot of our current transaction files can get up to 14gb in size. When I try and do a log analysis on a database that has only a 30Mb log, it take about 3 to 4 minutes to come back with any results. Multiply that by at least 10 for a 1 Gb file and it would take 2 hours. That is if it would even return anything. I usually get a timeout error, a big message box and then the application would shutdown. Not what I would call stable.

Even if it did return anything, that is just way to long for it to return anything. It would be cost prohibitive and I could have done a restore of the database off our main tape drives, restored the database and gotten any records back in that time.

Also, I have been in the Log analysis window and then wanted to quit the current analysis and go to a different database to do another one and it will die on me doing that as well.

Paying this much money for a 50 server license, I expected a better performing application than this. I do have the latest version of the application (2.2.1816) and have been in contact with tech support. They even offered for us to be a BETA test site. I thought this was supposed to be a completed application.

Can anyone tell me if I am doing something wrong or this application is really this buggy?

Thanks,

Michael LeVere
