Elvis SAS Log Analyzer
version 3.0, 2023-10-16 Download
Elvis is a Windows app for working with SAS logs. Open any SAS .log file in Elvis and you'll be able to navigate around it and search it far more easily than using a non-specialized plain text editor. If there are any ERRORs or WARNINGs, Elvis will take you straight there so you can start debugging right away.
Elvis also works with logs produced by the World Programming System (WPS).
The innovative new Log Explorer feature goes well beyond simply showing a colour-coded view of your SAS log. It presents all the key events in the log to create a searchable summary, showing librefs created and cleared, data sets read and written, macro variables set and resolved, and much more. This lets you understand the log much faster - if a data set is being created with fewer observations that it should, you can easily find the steps that contributed to that data set and see where the data was read from, what WHERE clauses were applied at each stage, and so much more.
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.

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.
