Logs are normally backed up by Time Machine, but Apple provides no tool which can access those backed up logs. Here’s how to do it.
The more frequently your Mac writes entries to its log, the shorter will its log record be: anything from a couple of days to almost a month.
What does your Mac get up to when you’re away from it? Mine was busy writing hundreds of thousands of entries in the log because of a couple of snapshots.
A log browser with charts? How frequency charts of log entries, separated by subsystem, can make your log even more accessible.
First full release of this macOS log browser, which also browses logs from iOS, iPadOS, watchOS and tvOS. Clean and simple to use, but very powerful.
In addition to the monospace font, adds the ability to limit the number of log entries displayed to improve response time, and makes changing Period much easier at last.
Previous versions could fail if run from a user account which is a member of very few groups. This update fixes that.
Adds CSV export of log extracts, and fixes two bugs. Is this now ready for final release?
Now uses monospace font, can write and read logarchive bundles and individual log files within them, and more.
Still struggling to use the Unified Log in Sierra and later? Perhaps Ulbow will make simpler but no less powerful. Please try this first beta.
