Are you already familiar with Logshark?

Logshark is a community-driven Tableau project that provides insight into how your Tableau environment performs. You generate logfiles in a .zip format and give them as input to Logshark. Then the tool automatically creates Tableau workbooks. In this way you make optimal use of what Tableau does best: providing insight into data. By using this approach you get a better view of the content of the log files, without endlessly scrolling through these files.

Tableau has a desktop application for MacOS, but for analysing logs via Logshark you currently have two options:
1. Run the tool in a Windows Virtual Machine (This is slow and consumes a lot of resources)
2. Run the tool in a Docker container (Fast, but this is hard to set up)

Personally, I went for the second option, because I am already quite familiar with Docker.
This approach took me quite some time to set up and I soon realised that it would be too technical for many people.

Therefore I have made an attempt to make this application more accessible for the MacOS user. By following the link below, you can find a step-by-step guide that should be able to be followed by everyone:

After performing all the steps described, you will have a working installation of Logshark and an easy-to-use folder structure to start using Logshark on the Mac.
