Job Log Explorer

Free Tool

Job Log Explorer is the ideal tool for IBM i administrators that significantly improves and simplifies the process of analyzing IBM i job logs. With powerful and easy-to-use filtering options, Job Log Explorer helps users to deal with large overwhelming job logs by efficiently locating critical entries in order to easily identify and resolve job-related issues.
Originally developed by Cilasoft for internal, partner and customer use, we are pleased to now provide Job Log Explorer at no cost to the entire IBM i community.


With Job Log Explorer, you can:
  • Import any job log directly from within its output queue on any connected system or work with job logs as locally saved text files.
  • Sort job entries by severity, text, message ID, etc. Job logs accessed by the tool are automatically parsed into columns for easy reading and click-sorting.
  • Filter job entries by single or multiple parameters using “And” and “Or” filtering options.
  • Read job logs in different languages (English, Spanish, German, Italian, French, and Portuguese).  The interface is available in English, French and Spanish.
  • Save filtered job entries as a separate file in .xml, .csv or .html formats.
  • Advance to any specified page within a job log.

Job Log Explorer is a free-license tool and no annual maintenance fee is required. 

No license key is required for the first ten uses of the tool. After ten uses, a license key is delivered upon receipt of a registration form submitted by the user. 

The key is valid for a 1-year period and can be renewed by the user at no cost.


Before installing Job Log Explorer, all .exe and .ini files must be extracted from the zip file and saved to the same directory on the PC.

Minimum Requirements: Windows 7 and higher

“Job Log Explorer is a huge benefit to me should I need to go through one of our massive end-of-day job logs when an issue arises. This convenient tool helps me easily find and resolve issues so I can quickly move on to other tasks. I can especially see how this tool will benefit individuals that provide daily support to multiple systems or customers.”
