Does anyone have a good tool they can suggest that can import a w3c log file for viewing? Something that has a nice format to it. Thanks,

Hi,

if you´re talking about the .mdf files in C:\Arquivos de programas\Microsoft ISA Server\ISALogs folder, check this: http://www.redline-software.com/eng/products/tk/components/mdf_viewer.php

Regards,
Paulo Oliveira.

Thanks Paulo for the reply. However, I am talking about the w3c files my ISA server generates.

Hi,

oh, ok. I got it! Import these files to Excel.

Regards,
Paulo Oliveira.

I can do that and I have done that. My problem is, Excel has a limit on the amount of data and most w3c log files are greater than the excel limit (75k rows???). I tried making my log files smaller, they usually average about 300-500MB daily, but the smallest log file you can configure in ISA is 4GB.

Excel 2007 allows for 1M rows.

How about Log Parser Lizard, it handles parsing of log files very well.  You'll need to know a little SQL syntax, but I use it and I'm no SQL expert.

Really like it.
