What is CMTrace?

By Garth Jones

CMTrace is a real time log file viewer for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager (CM12). What makes CMTrace a must have tool?

There are numerous reasons, but here are a few of my favorites:

· Review log files in real time as they are updated.

· Merge multiple log files together at once.

· Highlight error messages in red.

· Highlight warning messages in yellow.

· Highlight text based on your own needs.

· Ability to look-up codes.

· Filter rows based on conditions.

I strongly encourage you to give CMTrace a try. Where can you find the latest version of CMTrace? Download the System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager Toolkit http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36213

Stay tuned because in tomorrow’s blog post I will show you how to deploy CMTrace to your workstations and servers.
