Add new column, delta time between prev entry

Post by blak3r » Fri Dec 27, 2013 8:22 am

I'd love if there was another column that you could turn on that displayed the amount of time between that row and the previous row.

In otherwords, I don't want to manually pick each entry and then click the time button. Just want it to show up. Then, a really pro feature on top of that would be a color formatting based on the elapsed time between events... 0-200ms = Color1, 200-1000ms = Color 2, 1000-7000 = Color 3... Note this color would just apply to the column not the whole row so it doesn't conflict with the INFO, DEBUG, etc colors.

I think that would give a really great visual indicator as to what events happened all around the same time and which ones didn't.

Hello black3r,

Nice idea. Have you tried the "Correlation" feature? (In menu "Tools", item "Correlate"). LogMX will add a horizontal bold line between log entries when their delta-t are greater than the given time.

Else, you can achieve your need by creating/modifying your Parser: it will compute the time elapsed between each entry and the previous one, and add this result in a new user-defined field "Delta-t". Of course, this LogMX Parser shall be a "Java class" Parser (see

Anyway, we're adding this idea to our new features todo list, thank you.
