If you troubleshoot day in and day out, you will deal with an amazing amount of data. Because, to find out the cause and get to the bottom of the issue, we look into lot of places.

    Thanks Jawahar - I really like the idea of "bite-sized" techie diagnostics pieces like this.

    I am already somewhat familiar with Log Parser - but I learned about the Datagrid output format, and also liked the way you used MaxTime and AvgTime to get a deeper insight into the slow responses.

    One suggestion - paste the LogParser command lines you are demonstrating into the text commentary below the vid window. That way I can simply copy and paste to test against my own logfiles, rather then retyping a 200-char command line....

    ....coz I'm a bad typist!

    Subscribed, and looking forward to the next episode
