LogTran for Macintosh|
Comments and questions: Jason@Summary.Net
LogTran is a $25 shareware utility for Macintosh computers to translate log
files in any of several formats into NCSA Combined, WebSTAR, or ExLF format logs.
It is also able to
filter out entries based on the hostname, request, agent string or virtual
server name. This is useful for getting WebSTAR logs into a format that can
be read by log analysis packages that don't support WebSTAR format, such as
WebTrends. It can also be used to split up log files based on virtual server.
LogTran reads logs from WebSTAR (version 1.2 or higher), QuidProQuo, MacHTTP, Boulevard, FileMaker Pro (brief format only), and several others. LogTran reads all the same log formats as Summary. See the chapter from the Summary manual on log formats for a complete descritption of all the supported formats.
LogTran is shareware, you are free to try it out for 30 days. After that time you must register your copy in order to keep using it.

Using LogTran for Macintosh|
If you double click the application, LogTran will translate a file named 'WebSTAR.log' in the same folder as the application. LogTran also supports drag and drop. Logs dropped on the application will be translated with the output file appearing in the same folder as the input file.
LogTran will read logs in WebSTAR Extended format, WebSTAR ExLF format, Microsoft IIS format, Microsoft W3C ExLF format, and several others. For best results, configurable log format servers should be configured to include at least the client hostname, date, time, transfer size in bytes, result code, referer, and agent strings.
LogTran has a configuration file named "logtran.cfg" which must be in the same folder as the LogTran application. There are several configuration commands that control the translation process. Most users will be able to use the default settings.
