Alternative Log Format

Feb 27, 2012 at 10:24 AM

For my use case it would be very handy if the output from SCCM-CAT was in a more easily parsed (for scripting) format like CSV.

Having the format be more similar to this would be FANTASTIC.

Examples;

Host,Result,Time,Date
WorkstationX,WMI: Healthy,10:11:12,2012-27-02
WorkstationX,Admin$: Healthy,10:11:12,2012-27-02

Host,Result,Time,Date
WorkstationX,WSUS: http://wsus01,10:11:12,2012-27-02

Host,Result,Time,Date
WorkstationX,Uptime: 5 day(s) 4 hour(s) 14 minute(s),10:11:12,2012-27-02

Thank you, Nathan

Yes, the default logging format is based on Trace32 standard and it's hard to read it in any text editor. However, you can turn this formatting off and use basic text logging instead. To turn off Trace32 logging, edit config.ini file and set "enableTrace32Formatting" to "no".

I think I'm not going to create more logging formats as these two seem to be enough.
