    Command line tool which parses a raw log file (.sdraw) from Simple DNS Plus (v. 5.0 and later), filters and summarizes the data, and writes the result to a text file as comma separated values (csv format).

  • Convert Simple DNS Plus logs to W3C Extended log format
    Use Simple DNS Plus raw request log files (.sdraw) with tools, such as log web-site traffic analyzers, that understand the standard W3C Extended format (as typically produced by IIS, Apache, and other web-servers).
    The command line syntax is:
    sdraw-w3c.exe <log-date> <raw-log-file> <w3c-log-file>
    Raw request log files are enabled in the Simple DNS Plus Options dialog / Logging / Log Files section.
    The zip file below contains both the compiled .exe file as well as the C# source code (VS2008). This is a very simple program so if you want to add some type of filtering (only output some requests) or build on this functionality, it is easy to do so.
