Hi all,

I want to know if there are some additional tools to use to SQL Server Profiler to view and filter trace files. For very huge trace files (tens of GB) it is very hard to filter the data.

I already know the option to load the trace files into a table and afterwards create some indexes and select the data according to the wanted criteria.

Is there a tool with a friendly GUI which loads and filters the data quickly? (it may use also a database for this)

We also use ClearTrace, as it is easy and more effective to sort out trace data.
