Is there any way to open log4php logs by Chainsaw logviewer? If yes, can you explain it to me?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I disagree with closing this. These is a very relavent programming question. The Chainsaw log viewer is a programming tool. Log4Php is programming library – Preet Sangha Aug 10 '11 at 2:16

You need to get the chainsaw compatible appender. I'm only famailiar with the log4net appender for chaninsaw.

This is the one we used to use:

  <!-- Appender used with Chainsaw -->
  <appender name="UdpAppender-Chainsaw" type="log4net.Appender.UdpAppender">
      <remoteAddress value="" />
        <remotePort value="8999" />
        <layout type="log4net.Layout.XmlLayoutSchemaLog4j">
        <locationInfo value="true" />
