The 3.0.1 release contains a single fix to the ReplayCreation plugin: Updated some JSON keys produced by the ReplayCreation plugin to make the output work properly.

If you're already on the 3.0 release and don't use the Replayer plugin - you don't need to upgrade to this version.

This is the release of Logshark v3.0, a command line utility that you can run against Tableau Server or Tableau Desktop logs to generate a set of workbooks that provide insights into system performance, content usage, and error conditions.

Logshark 3.0 includes numerous fixes and improvements made since the previous release, but the most notable changes are:

  • Support for log sets generated by new versions of Tableau Server up to 2018.2.
  • Run outputs are now saved as hyper extracts instead of PostgreSQL. Not only Logshark no longer needs a dedicated Postgres database, it also runs significantly faster. The results of the Logshark run are now saved as hyper extracts embedded with the workbook (twbx), which enables the vizzes to load much faster.
  • Fixed a number of issues reported both internally and via GitHub.
  • Included optional silent Replayer plugin. Instructions and installation guide can be found on Tableau Community.

If you are a new Logshark user and want information about what Logshark is and how to use it, please see the README file and the installation & user guide.

If you are an existing Logshark user upgrading from Logshark v2.1, recommended steps to upgrade are:

  • Take a backup of Config\Logshark.config file, as it is replaced by upgrade (also Log.config if you made any changes to it)
  • Download and run the v3.0 installer to update your existing Logshark installation in-place.
  • Merge changes from original config file into the new one (don't overwrite the file as there are multiple changes in the structure of the file)

NOTE: Please note that you only need hyperd.exe and hyperd_sse2.exe if you want to build Logshark from code on your own machine.

This software is supplied AS-IS as an open-source community-supported tool under the MIT license. Any bugs or feature requests should be directed to the Logshark Git Issues tracker.

This is the release of Logshark v2.0, a command line utility that you can run against Tableau Server logs to generate a set of workbooks that provide insights into system performance, content usage, and error conditions.

Logshark 2.0 includes numerous fixes and improvements made since the initial v1 release in November 2016. Just a few highlights include:

  • Several new plugins have been added to enhance analysis output, including Vizportal, Filestore, Postgres, and SearchServer.
  • Workbook improvements have been implemented across the board. In addition, all Tableau workbook files have been updated to Tableau Desktop 10.0 and have received a face-lift.
  • "Artifact Processor" framework has been introduced, paving the way to add Logshark support for new upcoming Tableau product lines. This framework also makes Logshark extendable to process logs produced by applications other than Tableau.
  • Many, many bug fixes.

If you are a new Logshark user and want information about what Logshark is and how to use it, please see the README file and the installation & user guide.

If you are an existing Logshark user upgrading from Logshark v1.0, simply download and run the v2.0 installer to update your existing Logshark installation in-place. Note that the workbooks produced by Logshark now require Tableau Desktop v10.0+, instead of v9.3.
