    Query SharePoint Log files

    I ran a powershell query for get the farm merged log file for a day. But unfortunately the file size is huge and it couldnt open in a uls log viewer. The original log files were deleted and i have only newly created file thru powershell, can i query this new file and split the file into 2 half`s.? if so what is the query?

    I have not tried but you can query on log file (txt file) to split them in small files, see below snippet and see how it works for you

    $reader = new-object System.IO.StreamReader("C:\Exceptions.log")
    $count = 1
    $fileName = "{0}{1}.{2}" -f ($rootName, $count, $ext)
    while(($line = $reader.ReadLine()) -ne $null)
    Add-Content -path $fileName -value $line
    if((Get-ChildItem -path $fileName).Length -ge $upperBound)
    $fileName = "{0}{1}.{2}" -f ($rootName, $count, $ext)
