SmartLog is the only screen I get when I select Logs & Monitor. SmartView Tracker is much better for reviewing real time logs. Has It been eliminated in R80
Generally SmartView Tracker is obsolete in R80 and Smart Log should give you all the functionality that SmartView tracker is offering.
As Tim wrote you can still run SmartView Tracker from C:\Program Files (x86)\CheckPoint\SmartConsole\R80\PROGRAM\CPlgv.exe
Could you please elaborate why SmartView Tracker is better than SmartLog for real time troubleshooting?
We'll be happy to learn and improve Smart Log

You can manually run it from here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\CheckPoint\SmartConsole\R80\PROGRAM\CPlgv.exe
Still works, but you really should get used to using SmartLog...

I use smartlog when I need to see what happened last week - last month or since last year. I am used to it, but SmarView Log is much better for real time troubleshooting.
thanks for the link
Reviewing logs for an installation with 5 gateways. filter on origin:GW2
Tracker shows all logs from that gateway allowing me to see trends.
SmartLog show the number of logs which I can click to view details. It impossible to see what is going on in real time.
Change the filter to add Actions Block drop reject searching history records of 365 days 1,000,000,000+ records
170 seconds no match. - Tracker less than a minute and there are lots of records which scroll in real time.
SmartLog is great for when a trouble ticket has been opened days ago and the logs have switched. It is the only way to find out what happened.
Both should really be kept.
In order to see logs in real time in SmartLog you need to turn on the Auto-Refresh (arrow with A), I think that this will
give you the real time troubleshooting ability you need.

When you turn on auto refresh that is when it reports the number of logs per second for each gateway.
still not real time unless you filter.
Can we do a remote session or have a phone call that I'll try to help you with this issue?
