SQL Log Explorer plays a vital role in analysing, repairing the LDF file and password as well. Along with that, also allows to examine the NDF file.
View Records of Live Database
SQL Log Explorer tool permits you to fetch all the records of database online using correct credentials. So that, You can preview the entire records such as UPDATE, DELETE, INSERT etc. With this, you can connect to database online to access the transaction logs.
Every SQL Transaction is Analyzed
Using SQL Log Explorer, entire SQL Log activities can be read, open and preview. Preview activity includes: Transaction time, transaction name, query, table name etc. Since, SQL Server stores all its transaction and activity logs in .ldf file. So, It is easy to find out the expected reason of SQL Server corruption.
View all SQL log Transactions
This tool loads and scans all the tables of SQL database and provide a preview of all transactional activities stored in LDF file. This LDF Viewer facilitates with the view of transaction logs like: Transaction name, time and query. You can also view the records with Login Authentication for Delete, Insert, Update etc with their other details like id, class, status and name.
Multiple options to Extract Log file of SQL
This tool helps you by exporting the queries of SQL log files as SQL files in three ways:
-- Export as SQL server compatible SQL Scripts.
-- Export as SQL server database.
-- Export as CSV file.
Option to Export as SQL Server Database
On choosing option “Export as SQL Server Database” i.e. exporting the all LDF file queries to SQL Server Database then you have to provide all credentials of the database like database name, server name, username and password. Note: In order to avoid the overwriting of present database, export data to any other location in SQL Server.
Transfer recovered data to SQL Scripts compatible to SQL Server
If you are in a situation to transfer repaired data to different SQL Server database then you should export the queries of SQL LDF file to the SQL Server compatible SQL scripts. From this SQL script, You can move the data in any SQL Server according to your need.
Auto detection of MDF file with the LDF file
This software provides an additional feature that it will automatically find out the associated .mdf file. However, MDF and LDF file should be located at the same location. Otherwise, you have to browse the location of MDF file separately. In order to repair corrupt SQL Server database, you need to provide the Login details for last backup of SQL data.
Analyze Data of Multiple NDF files
SQL LDF Viewer tool permits you to analyze multiple .ndf files. With the help of this feature you can analyze data of different secondary database files to view entire records within the NDF file.
Sort elements of Log File
An option is available of automatic sorting to re-arrange the order of list items.This tool allows you to sort the components according to their properties like as transaction time, transaction, transaction name, table name and query.
Selected tables Exported
During the exporting process of .ldf files, you can export the selective tables as per your requirement. You can also export particular folder or data from any specific table as CSV, SQL data base or SQL compatible script.
SQL Server log files with an extension of .ldf may be defined as a transaction log containing log records generated during the logging process involved in SQL Server database.
A transaction is a single element for entire process. If a transaction ends in successful manner then all the modifications done to the database gets committed and permanently become a part of the database. The most effective benefit of log files is that if the transaction experiences any error and should be cancelled or rolled back then the modifications in the data will get erased.
