:-) Hi,
:-)
:-) I know this probably isn't what you're looking for, but you
:-) could use the
:-) JDBCAppender (I prefer Kevin Steppe's) to log to a
:-) database, and then use
:-) your existing database tools to filter and query - for
:-) instance MS Access or
:-) the equivalent for KDE/Linux.
:-)
:-) But if this is an existing log4j log, maybe you could try
:-) importing your
:-) text log file into a spreadsheet - you can have it break up
:-) your text file
:-) into delimited columns based on  spaces or tabs.  I just
:-) tried this with my
:-) log4j log and Excel, and it worked out ok. I don't really
:-) know much about
:-) sorting and filtering with Excel, except for you can do it :)
:-)
