To parse and analyze a logfile, simply open the file with Log Exchange (LX). By default no SIP messages or IP Addresses are excluded, so you see all the SIP messages in the log from every peer connected to the SBC 1000/2000. However, you see no module errors as these are off by default.
Opening Saved Log Files
There are three methods of opening a saved log file (
filename.log ) in LX:
In the File menu, click Open and browse for the file.
You can use the keyboard shortcut and browse for the file.
- Drag the file's icon onto the LX User Interface.
- Double-click the file's icon.
Copying Syslog Files
You can copy the current Syslog Server buffer to the text editor associated in Windows to text
Note: if you have not specifically associated .txt files with any other application, Windows will automatically use Notepad.
To copy the current buffer to a text editor:
- In the LX Syslog Server window, click Copy.
The contents of the Syslog buffer, at the instant you clicked Copy are copied and opened the associated text editor.
The Syslog buffer continues to capture log entries as they come from the SBC1000/2000 or VX, and none of the copied content is lost.
Analyzing LX Syslog Server Captured Messages
To begin analyzing captured Syslog messages:
- In the LX Syslog Server dialog:

To examine a log file:
- Go to Tools > Syslog Loss Analyzer in the menu bar.
- Click Browse in the Syslog Loss Analyzer.
- Browse for and select the desired log file.
- Click Open.
