Filter Raw Log

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). The data can be summarized either by zone, query name (qname), query type (qtype), request source IP address (fromip), or by hour.

This tool uses and includes the "Simple DNS Plus - Raw Log Library"

Simple DNS Plus raw log files are enabled in the Options dialog / Logging / Log Files section. The raw log files are then found in the Simple DNS Plus log files directory (See Options dialog / Logging section).
