This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
We are a Swiss software company called centeractive ag and as part of our marketing campaign we have decided to offer your JUG 10 free Retrospective Log Analyzer licences (worth 58$ each), which is a new tool we have recently developed.
To get your free licence you need to register at: http://community.centeractive.net quoting the following code: US_JAR_9641
Then you can go directly to the download site: www.retrospective.ch
We are sure you will enjoy the following cartoon that gives a brief explanation of the key features of Retrospective: http://bit.ly/OWBqY0
Some interesting features that are unique to Retrospective are:
- search / tail (monitoring) of logs on Linux hosts over SSH and on local disks
- log entries split
- column-split, log4j support
- date auto-parsing in logs, support for 90% popular formats (search in logs considering date of entry)
- filters (contains, date, etc.)
The licences are absolutely free with no conditions attached and no trickery involved. The only thing we would be grateful for would be if you could provide feedback about the product with one of the following methods:
- Posts on our forum: http://bit.ly/Sr89v3 - Short blog entries (please inform us at email@example.com so we can link it to our website)
- Tweets on Twitter (@centeractive_ag)
Our company is “community & user-friendly” and we would appreciate proposals concerning any improvement on new features. Any serious advice/comments will be considered when we prepare the next version. We publish a new version approximately once a month so for us it’s very important that we receive a valuable feedback from our future users.
Our roadmap includes:
- SSH keys support
- database search / tail support (table, view, query)
- windows host search / tail support
- hierarchical search
- command-line tool
Our agenda is full till at least March 2013. In addition we would like to provide every speaker of your JUG with a free licence. If you are interested in this special offer, please contact Magdalena at firstname.lastname@example.org
