Force.com Debug Log Parser

Update: This tool no longer works with Salesforce’s debug logs since they have switched to the new log format.

The Force.com Debug Log Parser (DLP) makes it easy to understand debug logs generated by the Force.com/Salesforce service.  The debug logs contain a lot of useful information like what apex triggers fired, what workflow fired, what field updates were made, and what order everything happened in.  Sifting through the logs manually is time consuming and does not make the event hierarchy very evident.

If someone is having an issue with a transaction in their Force.com environment, you can ask them for a debug log of the transaction and you could easily understand their setup better.
