Discussion

The ability to search the log records to better view events of interest provides the persons reviewing the logs with the ability to quickly isolate and identify these events without having to review entries that are of little or no consequence to the investigation. Without this capability, forensic investigations are impeded. This requires applications to provide the capability to search log record reports based on organization-defined criteria.
