Log and Text File Views

Highlighter™ is a free utility designed primarily for security analysts and system administrators. Highlighter provides a user with three views of the log or text file being analyzed:

  • a text view that allows users to highlight interesting keywords and remove lines with “known good” content
  • a graphical, full-content view that shows all content and the full structure of the file, rendered as an image that is dynamically editable through the user interface
  • a histogram view that displays patterns in the file over time. Usage patterns become visually apparent and provide the examiner with useful metadata that is not available in other text viewers/editors.
