Better Stack Team
Updated on November 6, 2023

IIS webserver logs each and every access into a log file. To better understand the data from the log, little help is needed in the form of a log analyzer. Log analyzer is a software that allows you to visualize log data in a human-readable form and most importantly, it allows you to filter the logs. You can filter out unwanted data, such as bot visits and brute force attacks which are quite common.

  1. WebLog Expert 
  2. Log Parser Studio  by Microsoft
