Introduction I like AIDA64, especially the logging functionality, but it's difficult to analyze this data. The diagrams within AIDA64 are very limited and there is no possibility to compare the influence of different settings (e.g. graphic) to the overall performance of a system. So I decided to implement a tool, which allows to illustrate AIDA64 log data in several diagrams and to compare multiple log-files side-by-side in one diagram ! User Guide Before you can use the tool, you have to generate an AIDA64 log file with at least the following marked settings: Log sensor readings to CSV log file UpTime The tool is very simple to use: no installation necessary, just start "GenericLogViewer.exe". At the top you can select how many diagrams with how many log-files should be presented by the tool. Open an AIDA64 log file by clicking the "Open File" button, select application type "AIDA64", select an AIDA64 log file and press "Open" (AIDA64 csv-log-files have typically the filename pattern: *_log.csv). After parsing the file, the logging duration of the file is shown and by default the "Timeline" diagram of the first log category. You can change the shown diagram with: Timeline/Statisic RadioButton Log Category ComboBox Change all buttons (changes category in every diagram) The Y-axis shows the values of the seleted Log Category in ComboBox (unit is within [..]) If an opened file is still updated with logging-data by AIDA64, you can simple update/refresh it by clicking on the "Reload"-Button: At the top left corner of every diagram you can find the arithmetic average of the corresponding curve: If there are too many different values on Y-axis in "Statistic" mode, the values are grouped into ranges. If this is the case, the following control is shown, which allows to increase of decrease the number of ranges (or to disable quantisation). Splitter between the diagrams allow you to adjust the height of all diagrams: After opening all log files you can hide the file area by unmarking "Show file area" to get more space for diagrams. New feature since version 2.1: Simple Mode I added a "two columns" feature, which doubles the number of diagrams. But if you use "two columns" with a high "number of diagrams" the diagrams are very small. That's why I introduced the "Simple mode" which: simplifies header and footer decreases line thickness Tip: use the "Tab"-key to toggle between 'Standard' and 'Simple' mode !
New feature since version 3.0: Time Window Definition If you click the "Edit"-button in the file area, a new window will be opened to define Start- and End-time of a time window for the logfile (see user guide at the top of this window). It allows you to show only a part of a single logfile or to synchronize multiple logfiles Attention: time window start-time is "normalized" to "00:00:00", otherwise synchronization of multiple log-files will not work ! Button description: "Set": defines Start/End time of time window "Reset": resets Start/End time to "file borders" "Zoom": zooms into diagram with the actual defined Start/End times for fine-tuning (from Start-10% to End+10%). Remark: works only in case of Start/End is more then 10% from "file Start/End times") "Cancel": closes window without any change "Apply": yes, take the actual defined Start/End times as the used time window for all diagrams ! New features since version 4.0 (August 2018): possibility to compare different categories of one file in one diagram possibility to present diagrams in a "dark style" If you have only file loaded, it's now possible to add up to two more ComboBoxes for category selection in any diagram. Addtional you can change the background color of the diagram section to black.
Tips for analyzing log files: Number of diagrams: 2 First diagram: Timeline Second diagram: Statistic Select on both diagrams same log category Use "Change all" buttons for synchronous changes in both diagrams
Microsoft Windows Microsoft Framework .NET 4.6.1 (at least) no installation necessary, just start "GenericLogViewer.exe"
The zip file (SHA-1 hash, Version 4.0: EB8551E052CC968BB230C95007F6958EA47A8981) contains the binary files of the tool.
GenericLogViewer - Version 4.0.zip Version history: 1.0: Initial version 1.1: "Change log category" buttons added 1.2: User Interface improvements 1.2: Switch to GenericLogViewer 1.3: Bugfix: depending on Windows Region Settings there could be a problem during DateTime conversion (older versions) 2.0: Many internal changes, new features see post below 2.1: New features see post below 2.2: Bugfix: log-files, created on a PC which was running > 24 hours couldn't be loaded -> fixed 3.0: New feature: Time Window Definition 3.1: Bugfix: sometimes log-files can't be opened after AIDA64 was stopped -> fixed 3.2: Bugfix: sometimes log-files can't be opened, case reported by mkos1 below -> fixed 4.0: Different categories of one file in one diagram and dark mode
I have an Asus Z10PED16WS MoBo. Any time I do anything that triggers a sensor scan in AIDA64 my machine locks up. I have the same issue in HWINFO64, so I don't think its an AIDA bug.
I want to enable logging so I can see exactly what is happening before the Machine Locks up, but when I select the logging tab in preferences, it initiates the sensor scan locking up the machine before I can enable anything.
Is there any way I can enable logging without initiating the sensor scan so I can see whats happening?
Thank You -
I purchased AIDA64 along with a Matrix Orbital LK204-25 and easily configured it to show system stats...great functionality! I'm curious, is it possible to request a feature to dim or turn off the LCD when the computer goes to sleep? Helps with LCD longevity and not lighting up a dark room when I'm not at the computer.
I would see if it would be possible to "sleep" the AIDA64 program when the computer goes to sleep as well. Right now, AIDA64 uses 1-2% CPU even when the computer is sleeping (since I see it on the LCD). Seems like these would be wasted cycles. Thanks for the great program!
Just want to request a Pinger item/object in sensr panel. An object to ping a Host, IP or URL and show it as a graph, bar or other item... Just to easily manage long ranged wireless connection and to easily see the their strength and also of the Internet connection
