A method for collecting log information relating to specific processing from pieces of log information for integration is disclosed. Session information, which is given every time log information is processed and included in the log information held by a server, is recorded in a session-information management table. In addition, how session information associates with others among different pieces of log information is recorded in a session-information association table. Recursively searching the session-information association table by use of session information specified by a user through a target log entry input unit enables identification of a set of session information relating to the processing to which the user pays attention. Information corresponding to each of the session information related is collected from log information, and is integrated according to the recorded data and time of a log.
