What log format do the SA Archive files use.

Hi All

What log format do the SA archive files use -

the 3 in use on the server are the following -

W3C Extended Log File Format

ODBC Logging

Microsoft IIS Log file format.

Does it use one of these ?

chosroes,

The IVE can log in WELF, WC3, and WELF 2.0. This is configured under "Use this filter" on the Archiving page.

And you have to set it for each log type (event, user, admin).

You can also define your own format at System>Log/Monitoring>logFile>Filters

when user-access logs are archived , how does one go about  auditing the logs offline ? when i try open the logs its ASCI so presume the file is compressed or encrypted .. any ideas ?

Archived logs are compressed with gzip.

The more information the better.

 

What error message?

Re: What log format do the SA Archive files use.

Filename : JuniperUserAccounts-standalone-Juniper.customer-20150302-0003 - 279mb 

 

i have tried 7-zip as its supports tar/gzip, etc 

 

when i try to open the file i get the errorr: "cant open file "file name" as archive" 

 

when i try to zip the file it stays the same size confirming to me that its compressed.

 

 

any ideas ?

That file is the user accounts backup file. Its not a log file, but what you can use to restore the user config.

 

The logs files usually start with:

 

JuniperAccessLog

JuniperEventsLog

JuniperAdminLog
