Android dumplog is a utility to:

  1. Filter android logs by package name (e.g. com.google.*) - Require root
  2. Serialize output log in JSON

Pre-compiled binaries can be found in the bin directory

Examples

Filter by package name

Only log ouput from com.google.android.youtube:

$ adb shell dumplog -f com.google.android.youtube:V

Output:

Save to JSON

Save log from packages starting with com.google into com_google.json:

$ adb shell dumplog -o /data/local/tmp/com_google.json -f com.google:V

Output of com_google.json:
