SmartInspect, our advanced logging tool for Java applications, is in many ways similar to log4j – but just so much more powerful and flexible. Instead of just allowing logging of textual information like log4j does, SmartInspect enables you to log objects, exceptions, images, files and much more. Additionally, SmartInspect ships with a rich and powerful viewer application to monitor variable values, view graphs, trace threads and filter messages. Get started today!
Log exceptions, objects, files, images, threads and more
Instead of just logging text messages like you can do with log4j, you can log many different kinds of data with SmartInspect. Additionally to logging exceptions, objects, files and more, you can also trace resources, analyze call stacks, monitor threads and filter log entries with SmartInspect. And we ship the full source code of the SmartInspect Java library, too.
Powerful and rich viewer application: SmartInspect Console
The SmartInspect Console is a rich and powerful viewer application to analyze your log files and to monitor your applications in real-time via TCP/IP. There is no similar application available for log4j and once you have used the Console to filter messages, view resource graphs and monitor your threads, you will never want to use log4j again.
Optimized for production usage, reliability and performance
SmartInspect contains special features like the Backlog Queue, the Memory protocol and Sessions that are optimized for production usage and performance. You won't find these in other logging tools. Additionally, we use thousands of unit tests to guarantee the reliability and quality of our logging libraries to make them the perfect choice for your logging needs.
