HowTo: Tail Logs in Windows using NotePad++ and the Document Monitor plugin


アトラシアン コミュニティをご利用ください。


Often in the course of troubleshooting or monitoring an application server, an admin will have cause to monitor one or more log files as they are written to disk. In Linux this is done using the command tail -f <logfilepath>, but in Windows there's no native equivalent. Among other options, the free program NotePad++ can be used with the Document Monitor plugin to enable similar monitoring.

1. Download NotePad++

The current version of NotePad++ is maintained at this link.

2. Activate the DocMonitor Plugin:

  1. Click Plugins > Plugin Manager > Show Plugin Manager
  2. Tick the box next to Document Monitor
  3. Click install
  4. Restart NotePad++ as prompted
  5. Open Log File
  6. Click Plugins > Document Monitor > Start Monitoring

Did it work?
To test, open a log file for an application server and then restart the service.
