I am running my IIS server log (from Windows 2000) against Analog. For whatever reason, the resulting Results.html does not include the Browser Summary.

What am I missing? I checked the errors.txt file and there isn't anything there that would point to the browser report missing.

I haven't seen an IIS log in so long. Have you checked opened the file and check to see if the Is the user-agent actually in there? – Zoredache Aug 6 '09 at 23:22
Yes, it's there. – AngryHacker Aug 6 '09 at 23:31

Do you have BROWSERREP ON and/or BROWSERSUM ON in your config? (Or are you running from the command line with +B and/or +b?) You may want to edit your question and include your Analog config and/or your command-line invocation of it.

FWIW, Analog's documentation suggests that it won't parse IIS files that contain referer and browser info:

There are also various third-party extensions to the Microsoft format to include, for example, the browser and referrer. But they all do it in different ways, so analog can't automatically diagnose them, and again, you need to write a LOGFORMAT command for them.

That said, explicitly setting LOGFORMAT to one of:

  • MICROSOFT-NA (North American date format),
  • MICROSOFT-INT (international date format),
  • MS-EXTENDED (Microsoft's attempt at extended format),
  • MS-COMMON (a buggy version of common format in some versions of Microsoft software)

may get you what you want. (All descriptions copied from Analog's documentation.)

Right on the money. I guess the default analog.cfg does not come with BROWSERREP ON and/or BROWSERSUM ON added – AngryHacker Aug 7 '09 at 16:03
