Hello LVDevers,

This message got trapped by the Meetup messaging system. The company is looking for beta testers for their log analysis tool. I checked it out and it looks legit, so I'm forwarding the message. Surprisingly this is the first time this has happened; perhaps it's a sign of our meetup's growth!

Hi,

We are a Swiss software company called centeractive ag. We have recently developed what we think is a pretty handy tool for log analysis called Retrospective Log Analyzer (www.retrospective.ch).

It's not a spam message; we are not trying to sell you anything. We would like to offer your community 10 free Retrospective Log Analyzer licences (worth 58$ each) in the hope that we will get some valuable feedback from real users. Developers' communities seem a perfect place for this. For the previous 6 months we have been improving this software and the feedback we have received so far has always been of great value to us.

To get your free licence you need to register at: http://community.centeractive.net quoting the following code: US_LA_6334. Then you can go directly to the download site: www.retrospective.ch

Retrospective's key features 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, and SSH keys support.

The Retrospective cartoon presents all these features in a nutshell: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pJn8ZEHRTE

We would be very grateful for any comments on our forum: http://forums.centeractive.com/viewforum.php?f=3

Any serious advice/comments will be considered when we prepare the next version.

Regards,
centeractive ag team
