Specify a time range for log analysis

Use the Range panel in the Log Analysis dialog box to select the time frame in which logging should run.


  1. Optional: If you want to analyze without limiting the analysis to a time frame, select Analyze all log event entries (search the entire log database) to perform continuous analysis in the background. Otherwise, leave the default Analyze specific date/time range only (faster) selected and continue to the next step.
  2. Select the Start Date and End Date for the dates you want to search.
  3. Select the Start Time and End Time for the times you want to search.
  4. Select one:
    • Convert time range to server's time zone -- Use this setting if you are searching the log file of a server in a different time zone.
    • Use above time range in any time zone-- Use this setting when you do not need to vary the search start and end parameters from your current time zone.
