The Log Analyzer allows selection of General and Binary files from the location different from Redo file location. Redo files for MySQL database are created by default and saved at a specified location but the creation of General and Binary Logs can be initiated with a command.

The log report can be used at a later stage to analyze the contents of the process. It contains detailed information about the analysis process, such as start and end time of scanning process, selected log file name, log file size, total number of transactions present, etc.
Stellar Log Analyzer scans MySQL logs, such as Redo, Binary, and General Logs, and provides a detailed analysis of log file transactions of the selected MySQL database.
