Log Parser Resource Area (Last Updated: Aug 03, 2013)

Welcome Charlie Arehart's Log Parser resource area, a vast resource list of tools on the LogParser (or "Log Parser", as it's formally known) tool. While the focus is to help CFML developers become familiar with the Log Parser tool, and ways to use it with ColdFusion and related technologies, non-CFML developers will also gain value from these resources.

This area will evolve as I expand it and add new resources. Some will be ones I create, while others will be located elsewhere.

Available sections:

Fundamental Log Parser Resources

  • Download the Log Parser tool, free from Microsoft
  • Don't miss/dismiss the available help available after installing the tool. It has tremendously valuable information.
  • Logparser Forums
  • Microsoft Log Parser Toolkit, great book, available from the publisher Syngress and used from Amazon (like the tool itself, not updated in several years, but still so valuable)

Learning More about Log Parser (articles and blog entries)

I've found many more resources since I wrote the article above. Don't worry if some are a few years old. The Log Parser tool hasn't really changed much since 2003. That's ok, though. It does what it does well. Similarly, some of them focus on using it with things like ASP.NET, or MS Exchange, etc. Don't dismiss the articles, though. They may still discuss a feature that could benefit you.
