I am running tests on an application which it produced huge logs. These logs after the test are loaded into excel and then I perform some manipulations to calculate some values. The problem is Excel do not load all the file, and I am getting a message about that. My wish is to get a tool that can break down a given file, into tiny files. Freeware is preferred.
"A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. Now, on my Desk, I have a work station...."
I'm aware that's not what you have asked for, but I'm wonder why you would prefer to break down files instead of:
- importing them directly into a database (almost any database will alow you to do this easily), or
- write a small script to extract only relevant information from that huge logs.
I have now to face same problem: to extract relevant information from huge file (audit files > 1GB) in order to build some controls.
Fortunatelly, I have these files in UNIX environment, where it's easier to do it.
If you need a reason to be happy - FIND IT, don't wait it !
