    Analyse Linux Logs with Logshark

    Sylvain Cogné

      Hello Tableau community,

       

      I am currently trying to analyse a set of logs from our newly installed Tableau server on Linux and it appears that Logshark isn't able to proceed them.... Did someone already experienced this issue or am I doing it the wrong way?

       

      When I try I get an error message that this may not be a valid Tableau logset...

       

      Are the logs on Linux and on windows completely different or is it the same structure?

       

      Thank you in advance for your help.

       

      Sylvain

          It could be that the format is more in the style of Linux / Unix which does not have the line feed where windows does have the line feed.  Do you have a utility to convert the Linux log format to a windows format?  I've used logshark against windows files, but unfortunately have no linux logs to speak of as of right now, so I can't quite test this out myself.
