Searching the Transaction Log

RadderzRadderz Posts: 2 New member
Do any of your products enable you to view and analyse the transaction logs?

We would like to be able to analyse the log files by seaching for columns and values; ie Updates queries where value tblSite.SiteId == 12

Is this at all posible? Currently we use software from a different provider to do this task, but would like to move to red-gate (as we have other bundles and would like some alternatives)

Thanks, Radderz

    Hi Radderz,

    Redgate no longer has a product that views and analyses transaction logs.

    In the past, Redgate had a product called SQL Log Rescue which would analyse SQL 2000 transaction logs, to help recover from an accidental deletion of objects and data. This product was removed from sale some years and is no longer supported.  

    Many Thanks

    Ok thanks Eddie,

    It's a shame, we have only found one provider which offers both the reading and searching of transaction logs. It's a great tool and used to use it regularly before being forced to upgrade with the latest SQL server version, but of course a lack of competition means that they can charge what they like.

    If you offer in future please let me know.

    Thanks, Radz
