In The Mix

As a SharePoint architect I have the business behind me and the Developers and IT Pro on my shoulders.

SPTraceView v1.0 Released June 28, 2011

Filed under: SharePoint — fmuntean @ 7:42 pm

Yesterday we finally released the version 1 for the SharePoint Trace View tool available on CodePlex.

SPTraceView analyses in real time the ULS trace messages coming from all SharePoint components and can notify you using a balloon-style tray bar messages when something of interest happens. This functionality is targeted mainly for people that develop and/or test custom SharePoint applications. It could be also useful to administrators to diagnose and troubleshoot their SharePoint farm.

As soon as you run it, SPTraceView will start receiving all messages from SharePoint.



  • Receives messages directly from the ETW logging system.
  • Easily enable/disable processing of the messages.
  • Process them and filter based on different criteria.
  • Balloon-style real time notification.
  • Log to xml files.
  • Trace to the Debug View for further filtering and processing.
  • Monitor entire Farm remotely.
  • Automatic update notification.

Also a version supporting SharePoint 2010 is available too and work is done to release a stable version soon.
