Elvis SAS Log Analyzer
version 2.1, 2019-06-18
Elvis takes a SAS log, either from a file stored somewhere on your system or from the clipboard, and allows you to view it, navigate around it, search it and more, which makes working with large SAS logs much, much easier and faster than simply looking at the log in a non-specialised viewer such as a plain text editor, Internet Explorer or Notepad. Elvis also works with logs produced by the World Programming System (WPS).
Shows all the logs in one or more folders and gives an instant, up-to-date indication of each log's status - red if there are errors, green if it's clean, and so on. This is a great way to monitor a large set of SAS programs and see instantly if any of them have any outstanding issues.
'SAS' is a registered trademark of The SAS Institute.
This is a completely free trial version of Elvis, so you can download it and try it out with no outlay. The free downloadable version below will only read the first 800 lines of each log - to unlock the full power of Elvis, you will need to buy a registration code. For a single user, this costs just US$49 through our payment partner MyCommerce; please enquire for multi-user and academic discounts.
If you choose to uninstall Elvis, follow these instructions:
From the Start menu (or Start screen, on Windows 8 / 8.1), select the Setting icon, then select or search for 'Add or Remove Programs'. Select Elvis in the list of installed programs, then click 'Uninstall'.
A detailed web-based User Guide is available here - it will open in a new window.
This version of Elvis includes telemetry that records certain details of how you use it and uploads this information to our servers on a roughly weekly schedule. This is an important part of the software development process as it helps us to understand how Elvis is used, the types of computer that it's used on, the typical size of the logs it's used with, etc. We guarantee that:
The usage log file is stored in <user folder>\AppData\Local\Oceanview Consultancy\Elvis and you can view this at any time if you'd like to see what data is being collected.
Telemetry is automatically enabled when Elvis is installed but you can change this at any time using the Preferences dialog.
