LogImporter reads webserver log files (iis, w3c), applies transformations on data records and imports them into a database (currently only SQL Server is supported).
- Parses log files
- Determines which log entries are new since last import
- Imports log data into SQL Server
- Removes guid ids in urls to generate statistics for actual pages (e.g. ASP.NET MVC url routing with guid ids in the path)
- Resolves client ip address to country name and code (using GeoIP.dat by MaxMind)
- W3C extended (IIS)
LogImporter is used from the command line.
The following options are required:
-d=VALUE Directory with log files -c=VALUE Connection string for target database -t=VALUE Target table name
Furthermore the following optional parameters are available:
-p=VALUE Pattern for log files -n Create the table if it does not exist already -f, --force Force full import of all files
LogImporter.exe -d "D:\logs\W3SVC8" -t w3c_testlog -n -c "Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=logimporter_test;Integrated Security=True" -p "*.log"
How to build LogImporter:
- Go to
go diston the command line.
Note: Maybe you have to adjust the path to
build\go.bat to your .NET version number.
