XPLG Modules

XPLG includes several modules: Apps, Search, Analytics and PortX.


XPLG Apps centralizes the data visualization capabilities of the platform. Under each App a set of Live Dashboards can be managed to create a live visualization of the data that is managed in XpoLog. The Apps provide an easy way to manage multiple visualizations under a logical structure that makes it easier to identify issues, trends in the organization. 

Accessible via the Apps tab in the main screen on the top left corner.

XPLG Search (XpoSearch) allows you to perform centralized searches across multiple data sources. Using the XpoSearch interface, you can search all the logs in XpoLog Center, including applications, servers, network devices, and database tables. You can search values using common search syntax such as Boolean operators, wild cards, and regular expressions. Through its intuitive language, you can search specific terms, combined phrases, any text, IP addresses, numbers, and more, and then view and analyze the results, while creating monitors, filters, and reports. Advanced capabilities include complex search syntax for measuring time of events, computing averages, calculating aggregation in time bucketing, and more. 

Accessible via the Search tab in the main screen on the top left corner.

XPLG Analytics

XPLG Analytics offers automated monitoring and problem isolation. It automatically scans the logs for errors, risks, and anomalies according to predefined rules. It generates dynamic reports and sends alerts as soon as new risks or problems are detected. Each event is mapped to a risk level according to the error message. Analytics also aggregates and computes statistics of many dimensions in the log events: the amount of events over time, type of message over time, risks, anomalies, and more. When these aggregated statistics exceed the normal thresholds, XPLG alerts the relevant user.

Accessible via the Analytics tab in the main screen on the top left corner.

PortX - Platform Administration

PortX includes the administration screens for managing the information, which is covered in the Administrator Guide, as well as several features for the end-user:

  •  Log Viewer – A dedicated real-time log viewer that allows basic navigation through the various logs, opening specific logs, displaying specific log records, filtering, customizing a log, and exporting a log. 

  •  Log Monitor – A monitoring engine that verifies the logs' contents and alerts when a rule matches the log records.

Accessible via the PortX entry in the main screen on the top right corner.
