Our objective in this thesis work is to analyze and manage the log files which are generated after a number of experiments series on different groups using C3Fire simulation environment. It includes analyzing and extracting information from log files, and then maintaining this information in a database. This should be presented with a web interface through ICEfaces Ajax framework for Java. Log Files are generated after a number of experiments series on the different groups. All sequences and information related to task performed by team in group is organized in session log files. The work is divided into different steps; first step is to analyze and extract data from log files, and properly arrange it in several different tables in a database, for this MySQL database is used to store the information. The web interface of log file management system is implemented using ICEfaces Ajax framework, and is based on the statistics of log files generated from the C3Fire environment. User would be able to add/remove the log files, also can view or edit the details of each session log file in database through web interface. Different events can be generated, and logged for the session information.
C3Fire is an environment that supports training and research in team collaboration. The environment is mainly used in command, control and communication research, and in training of team decision making. Many humanitarian relief operations are doing their work without having any practice. When some disaster events occur, they cannot perform their jobs effectively. Effective and efficient relief operation is the need of humanity; even that’s not enough to move teams to the disaster place at right time; communication and co-ordination among the team members is the big factor to make effective and well-organized work. C3Fire is a simulation system which provides the training for team members to handle such type of disaster events, and makes the work more proficient at that time by doing effective coordination.
