Log Analyzer

Log Analyzer is a tool I wrote years ago for a friend of mine who worked as an administrator in a local Internet Service Provider. The way they used to take into account the time spent by users in the Internet was more than ridiculous – they used the standard command “last“, a finger crawling on the monitor and silently calculating with huge rounding errors.

As a result Log Analyzer was born – a well- (but ugly-) written program in C which allows:

  • analyzing any binary file supporting the wtmp structure as well as multiple files;
  • filtering by user, host, line and login/logout periods;
  • HTML output (to use as CGI);
  • detailed documentation.
