Hello everybody,

I hope someone can help me. I am searching for a (simple) tool to see the details of users information from the ISAlogs. All the tools I have tested are to complex and cost too much time to read the logs. I just want to give 1 username. After that I just want to see the information for that user. Not a whole lot of other info. We have ISA server 2000. I'm searching a tool kind like Kraken Reports….

I haven't dealt with ISA logs in a while, but I seem to remember that they were ASCII, similar to IIS logs. If that's the case, Perl is an excellent tool, and it's free.

You don't have to be…if someone can produce santized or example copies of ISA logs, or at least the format (ie, comma-separated values, with a listing of what each "column" contains), then it's not hard to write something…

The UNIX "grep" command will do exactly what you want. Give it a file name and a search string and it will rip through tons of data, producing only what you asked for. In fact, the MKS Toolkit for Windoze platforms is a wonderful UNIX emulator that gives you access to all of those great tools.

Perhaps Loggerythm would be helpful.

There is a short writeup on ISAserver.org.
