Extra-Information

In addition to the pictures of the user's action, vLog adds more important information to the report.
This information is (in most cases) synchronized with the user-actions (the logo-lines) and it is used by the developer to analyze the problem. The nice thing about the "Extra-Information" is that once you configured it (and "Exported" it), the users don't need to do anything to create a comprehensive report.

The following types of information can be configured.

Application's and System resource counters.

Such as CPU%, Mem-Usage, Number of threads,...".
The counters are displayed in the "Counters" pane when you click on a log-line.
This option can be set/unset in "Options".

Application's Log files.

One of the most important toll to analyze a software defect is the Log file.
The problems with the Log file is that it is usually very big and that it is difficult to synchronize between the Log lines and the user-actions. vLog solves these problems, when it creates the report, it cuts the part of Log file that matches the report's boundaries (first and last lines). vLog viewer synchronizes the lines from the application's Log-File with the matching user-action
The lines are displayed in the "information pane" below the picture.
For more info, click on the "Help" button in the "Attached Files" tab, in the Config->Applications "Properties" dialog.

Other Application's files.

In many cases, other files are needed to analyze the problem (e.g configuration file).
There are three types of files that you can choose.
Text - vLog will attach the file. When you select it in the viewer, vLog will open the file with the Notepad.
Binary - vLog will attach the file. When you select it in the viewer, vLog will save it in a temporary file and will open the folder.
Info - vLog will only bring and display the information on the file. Its size, creation-time, and if it is a DLL or EXE - its version.
For more info, click on the "Help" button in the "Attached Files" tab, in the Config->Applications "Properties" dialog.

Registry Information

In some cases, an important information is in the registry.
vLog enables you to define branches in the registry that will be attached to the report.

HTTP Messages

For WEB applications and other client-server applications that use HTTP (e.g WebSerices).
vLog serves as a sniffer and captures the messages to and from the defined URLs.
vLog viewer enables you not only to view the response in different formats, but also to compare the differences of HTTP messages.
It even enables you to resend an HTTP request and compare the replies (view the differences).
For more info, see the Help on WEB applications.

Load HTML

For WEB applications.
This feature works only with Internet Explorer browser.
vLog intercept the IE when it loads an HTML and if it is for a URL that in its list, it add another line (Load HTML) to its log.

Click on Element

For WEB applications.
This feature works only with Internet Explorer browser.
When the user clicks on an object in the browser, vLog reads the object's attributes and add it to the log.
When the user clicks on the log-line (in the viewer), vLog shows the object's attributes as an XML.
