I've got an IIS6 server with a boat load of log files.

What good tools are there that I can't use to get a decent amount of detail from the logs?

It can depend on which format of log file you've chosen and which details are logged (this is of course configurable), but I would try,

And for converting between the various log file formats or ther detailed analysis I think you can use,

This site looks full of information, Logparser Forums : The Official Microsoft IIS Site

And this if you're asking on ServerFault then this is probably worth a read, Coding Horror: Microsoft LogParser ;-)
