Dear friends,
I have quickly put together a application that analyses error log files, and generates various reports. The log files need to be in a particular format which is documented in README.txt. I am attaching a zip file which contains program files and sample log files. The application is extensible so that it can generate different kinds of reports without modification. Please try this application and let me know if there are major usability concerns.At best this application is of BETA quality so please be kind. The following are the few reports generated from the application.

How to use this program? [#permalink]

### Show Tags

07 Sep 2004, 07:12
Praetorian and pbajaria..

I would like to know how to use this program. I downloaded Python 2.3 from the website. But, when I open Python GUI, I do not know what to do next. I also read that README file, but it did not make any sense to me.

I am not an IT guy, so do not know all the tricks you can play with program to make it run. What kind of input can you supply to this program to generate the output cut-pasted by Praetorian? Can you give me detail info about how can one satisfactorily make use of this program?

Thanks,
buds

1)Assuming that you have Windows OS running, open "Command Prompt".
2) Go to the directory where you have unzipped the program files.
3) Type "report.py" and you should see help on how to use the program as follows

Options:
-h display this help messsage
-f data file/files
-r report name

4) I have included some sample log files. Now type "report.py -f gmat_club_c4.txt -r report_quant". You should see the following

Code:
---------------------------------------------
| Type              | Cor | Incor | Av Time |
---------------------------------------------
| distance          | 0   | 1     | 02:39   |
---------------------------------------------
| mixture           | 1   | 0     | 02:33   |
---------------------------------------------
| ratio             | 1   | 0     | 00:38   |
---------------------------------------------
| probability       | 4   | 2     | 02:13   |
---------------------------------------------
| geometry          | 1   | 2     | 01:56   |
---------------------------------------------
| basic algebra     | 5   | 1     | 02:35   |
---------------------------------------------
| work              | 1   | 0     | 03:45   |
---------------------------------------------
| number properties | 4   | 10    | 01:36   |
---------------------------------------------
| rate              | 1   | 0     | 04:39   |
---------------------------------------------
| fraction          | 1   | 0     | 01:42   |
---------------------------------------------
| percentage        | 1   | 0     | 01:20   |
---------------------------------------------

5) Now if you want to generate report on more than 1 file then you would wildcard the file name. i.e

report.py -f gmat_club* -r report_quant

Now, the generated report will use all log file name that start with name "gmat_club".

6) There are 3 reports that you can run
a) report_quant : This report gives detailed information about your quant. log
c) report_correct_percent: This report gives your overall percentage correct/incorrect

7) The format of log file is relatively easy to understand. Use one the included log files as template

Hopefully, this should get you little bit futher. Let me know if you need more help.
