This software tool provides a way of analyzing the logs from your organization’s proxy server.
Proxy Log Explorer is a fast analysis application for monitoring the efficiency of corporate Internet usage of your Proxy server. Two desirable things about such a tool are the reporting capabilities and the ability to handle log file formats from different manufacturers. This tool appears capable on both fronts. The log formats supported are quite a few, that include Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server log file format, Microsoft Web Proxy Server 2.0 log file format, Squid log file format, Netscape Proxy log file format, Proxy+ log file format, CCProxy log file format, CCProxy v2010 log file formats and other W3C Extended formats. Additionally, it can recognize log file formats automatically, extract compressed log files, process multiple log files and download log files from various sources such as the web, any particular FTP and ODBC compliant databases, etc.
Proxy Log Explorer reports are created dynamically on-the-fly. Getting a report of only a specific part is also done easily through right click on the item and choosing the sub-report format. A set of filters allows you to customize Proxy Log Explorer and lets you create only data that you need in reports. Graphical charts/graphs are also available for statistical data. The interface is simple enough. You should be able to assign even the newest entrant to your IT department to start monitoring and managing the log data.
