ELOG is part of a family of applications known as weblogs . Their general purpose is :
ELOG is a remarkable implementation of a weblog in at least two respects :
On the left upper panel is a typical logbook page displayed by Netscape
Navigator. Each logbook page can contain attachments in a similar way to
emails. This makes it possible to store images or text files and retrieve them
easily. You could for example attach a sample configuration file which can
later be copied to the local machine with the "Save As..." function of
the Web browser.
Several logbooks can be served though a single ELOG server. Each logbook can use different attributes for its entries. The logbook can then be searched using these attributes. The right pane on the left image shows a search for all entries with attribute "Type" equal to "Configuration ", and the lower pane shows the search result. It is also possible to use full-text search in attributes and the entry body.
While logbook entries are usually displayed one entry per page, they can also be listed consecutively which makes it easy to produce a paper printout of a logbook.
Logbook pages can be edited or deleted. This feature can be turned off in the configuration file so that a logbook entries cannot be changed after being submitted.
An additional feature is the automatic generation of a notification email messages based on a certain type or category of a logbook entry.
