Communicator ETL logfile reader RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    is there any tool to convert the binary .ETL file (coming from the communicator clients, when client side logging is enabled in office communicator 2007 clients) into a human readable format?

  • Hello Richard,

    OCS ships with a tool (OCSLogger.exe) to read ETL files, refer tech note at http://imwire.eventure.biz/imwire/articles/48.aspx

  • I know that ocslogger works for its own logfiles (that are created directly by this tool during a logging session) But! It doesnt seem to read the log files coming from clients.

    It just doesnt offer the .ETL file as an entry, to be checked for converting. However, I can rename communicator.etl to Clientversionfilter.etl or sipstack.etl, and it finds the file after that. But surprisingly it cannot convert it into human readable text file, just provides an empty .TXT.

  • You could enable uccplog logging then use Snooper.exe to view the generated logs in readable format.
