...and I love Sawmill - used to use it (many) years ago. Recently I evaluated a number of products to analyse our log files, and came back to Sawmill. I can get results out of it quickly, yet it's configurable enough to do just about anything...

Why Log Analytics ?

Log Files and Event Logs may look like millions of discrete and unconnected events but they are the building blocks of data constructs such as website visitor sessions, or firewall sessions tracking visitor activity while on your network, or firewall bandwidth monitoring, monitoring employee web surfing via a proxy server, or employee use of the mail server etc.. These examples, and many more, demonstrate the valuable data locked up in log files. Sawmill takes this log and event data to a new level by understanding and analysing the complex logging formats and data structures of every device or application program and releasing the real world business intelligence data hidden within them.
