Apache log parser
Apache web servers are popular among businesses for hosting websites and web applications. The pivotal position held by these servers makes proper security measures a must. A log management tool that can parse, index, and give you meaningful data on the security status of such critical servers might be just the thing you need.
EventLog Analyzer, our log management tool, ticks all the right boxes for managing logs from Apache servers. Its out-of-the-box support for the Common Log Format means that it can readily collect, parse, index, and analyze logs generated from your Apache servers. It parses a few important values in Apache logs by default, including: the date and time of the event; IP address and username associated with the event; Apache status code; and number of bytes transferred.
EventLog Analyzer doesn't stop at breaking logs down into more logical blocks. It makes your job a lot easier by displaying all that information in the form of reports. This reduces the time it takes for you to decide what to do next in case of an emergency, like a network security attack.
EventLog Analyzer provides out-of-the-box support for over 700 log formats from over 40 vendors. Its custom log parser helps you import any human-readable log and automatically extracts known fields such as IP address, date and time, and source IP. Furthermore, the interactive wizard lets you extract log fields that are important for your organization. Once you've imported your Apache server logs, EventLog Analyzer will automatically extract any custom fields. From there, you can set up alert criteria, build correlation rules, and complete other tasks using custom fields.
The custom log parser's ability to extract critical data from any log format makes EventLog Analyzer a force to be reckoned with in the IT security arena.
