Great book!! Aug 28, 2008
This is a must have for any systems engineer who needs to take a proactive approach in system monitoring. Used in conjunction with ASP and a backend database, real time monitoring apps are a snap to build.
Dream Book on Dream Tool Oct 4, 2006
This tool is amazing in that it supports a variety input and output formats including reading in syslog and outputting into databases are pretty Excel charts. The filtering uses an SQL syntax. The tool comes with a DLL that can be registered, so that scripters (VBScript, Perl, JScript, etc.) can access the power of this tool.
This book not only covers the tool (alternative being to scrape the network for complex incomprehensible snippets), but shows real world practical solutions with the tool, from analyzing web logs, system events, security and network scans, etc.
This tool is just heavensend for analysis and transforming of any data in a variety of formats. The book and tool go hand-in-hand, and I highly recommend incorporating this into your tool (and book) into your tool kit and/or scripting endeavors immediately.
Basic and lacked in depth detail Aug 24, 2006
This book was basic and lacked in depth detail. I actually got more out of the help file that came with log parser. I was hoping for more detail on creating and using charts. This is not one of the better books i've bought this year.
Excellent Real World Examples Mar 3, 2006
I bought this book thinking it would be a good reference point for using Log Parser 2.2, and am exceedingly impressed with the volume of real-world, practical examples.
Within minutes I had several scripts in production and was on my way to writing much more complex queries to squeeze every drop of valuable data from my logs. I'm querying IIS logs, Event Logs, CSV files and more with ease.
I've got this book at my side any time I go to write a new script. I would definitely recommend it to others.
A must have for the Network Administrator / Security Pro Feb 23, 2005
This is a complete reference for utilizing the MicrosoftLog Parser Tool in real world scenarios. The authors do an outstanding job of bringing you from the basics of Log Parser through advanced techniques and tricks. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it end to end, and have begun utilizing Log Parser in my daily log assessment routines. The Tips, Swiss Army Knifes, and Master Craftsman sidebars prove extremely creative and helpful.
