Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've always just gone in and looked at the IIS log files manually. But now I need to sort through several huge log files for an ASP.NET application and I'm thinking some kind of parser would be a good idea, especially if it's got some sort of interface and can access log files remotely.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Microsoft Log Parser is pretty good. Here is a tutorial on how to use it. The tutorial mentions a GUI tool but gives a dead link. There is a free GUI called Log Parser Lizard that might be easier than using Log Parser from the command line. Otherwise there are a bunch of commercial products if you google around.

We use a combination of logparser and tail/awk depending on the situation
