That's a very cool piece of software for geeks who like/want to inspect their hardware in all the minute details! :D
Allows me to see the difference between the two BIOSes of my new Gigabyte RTX 3070 Ti Gaming OC when running the same benchs.
Conclusion: very little performance difference between the two, with the "Silent" BIOS resulting in a little more temperature, i.e. 65°C maximum vs 62°C with the "BIOS OC" setting.

At that point I wish to add something as a wish list.
I made a graph for a project, GPU usage + Temperature.
And at two values mode, I did feel the need to add color mark next to its one text description, as assistance for the others.

Hi kiriakost,

hm ... should be clear which category is which color, same order as color lines on left side of tool, but why not, if it's more clear then. Think I will not add into the text-field, maybe close to text-field:

Hi Tom,

I had no doubt, that you will use my feedback in a productive manner !!
Yes your idea, this is also an excellent solution.
Looking forwards for the next software release.

Hi all,

I have developed @kiriakost idea even further, I will implement some kind of "screenshot" mode, which
  • better documents the used diagram colors
  • hides many selection controls (not needed for a screenshot)
  • also documents the diagram colors for "multiple files" case

Example 1 - Single File - Multiple Categories

Screenshot1.png


Example 2 - Multiple Files - Single Category

Screenshot2.png

In the header are the opened filenames shown, without foldername and file-extension. E.g. used files above could be
  • C:\Users\username\Documents\FileName1 - GTX 1080.csv
  • L:\Logs\FileName2 - GTX 2080.log
  • Z:\somewhere\else\FileName3 - GTX 3080.txt
So ... if you have different logs from different hardware configurations, use meaningful file names (you should always do this).

Regards
Tom

New Version 6.3 available !

Hi all, I built a version 6.3 with the following new features:
  • "Selfie-Mode" for better screenshots
  • Category ComboBoxes have now color-markers on the left side
  • Screenshot functionality improved

Selfie-Mode
A new mode especially for screenshots/documentation. The selection controls are hidden and a special header is displayed. By default, the header shows the name of the logfile (without folder and extension), but the header can be edited. Click in the header and edit the displayed text if needed.

Single File - Multiple Categories: color-markers are at diagram categories

SelfieMode1.png



Multiple Files - Single Category: color-markers are at filenames (editable)

SelfieMode2.png


The easiest way to get a display like above is to use the hotkey "Ctrl+Tab". It does two things: toggles the selfie-mode and hides the main-header. If you use the selfie-mode CheckBox, you can hide the main-header manually (hotkey "Alt+h").

Category ComboBoxes with color-markers
@kiriakost had a good idea to improve the user interface, especially for identifying the colors used in the charts. So from now on there are color markers on the left side of the category ComboBoxes:

Categories.png


Screenshot functionality improved
Simply explained: when a screenshot is created with the camera icon, the selfie-mode is automatically activated before the file is created and automatically deactivated afterwards. The created file shows the view in selfie-mode.

Hope you enjoy the new features

New Version 6.4

Hi all, I built a version 6.4 with the following new feature:
  • "Marker-Mode", which allows precise determination of every single log value

Marker-Mode

MarkerMode.png


When the marker mode is activated and the mouse pointer is moved into the area of a diagram, a vertical purple marker line appears which follows the mouse pointer until the first mouseclick. After that, the vertical line can be reset by a another mouseclick or moved by means of arrow keys as follows:
  • - 10 log values: Shift + left arrow key
  • - 1 log value: left arrow key
  • + 1 log value: right arrow key
  • +10 log values: Shift + right arrow key
Please do not be surprised if the individual marker lines are not all perfectly aligned horizontally (like above), this is due to the possible different labeling of the Y-axis (width). The exact timestamp of the currently selected log value and its value is always displayed next to the maximum value of the selected category.

Like always: hope you enjoy the new feature
Tom

Tom, I have no words... thank you a lot for this very nice tool! I can't believe this isn't exposed more on the usual websites after almost 10 years of development and usage.

Anyway, I had a situation with how to capture and easily view stuff that just couldn't be captured with normal tools, because some data is from HWinfo, some is from Afterburner, some from GPU-Z. And then I stumbled (completely accidentally) on someone mentioning your tool, and voila!

As a sample I took just a few second reading with Afterburner and GPU-Z, arranged some layouts with your very nice tool, and got a usable way to overview my data without spending 2 hours in Excel :)

Sure, I have some wild fantasies (wishes), like supporting multiple DIFFERENT sources in same app instance, ability to remove the "title" in the "selfie" mode (to get more actual data on screen), ability to use real-time date/time when selecting start-end range, and so on, but as my screenshot (attached) shows, I've worked around those... To get around date/time range I did my best to quickly start logging at same time (sure, a second or so difference), then I've opened 2 instances, matched duration of files, aligned the windows one over the other best I could, used "simple" mode, and - I got a very usable overview of my data.

I'll keep an eye on this, I'm glad development continues, who knows what new exciting features await in the future :) Cheers!

Edit: and while at wild wishes, maybe a "live" marker that follows a mouse and shows the graph numbers without pointing exactly at the line, for example how they did in Afterburner monitor, being "instant" or "real time" helps a lot to quickly move around. But hey, that's just wishes :)

Ignore that Edit from yesterday, I was just looking at wrong place for "live marker" data, probably because window was too small and there was too much data. Works great, thanks! :)
