The Import Log Files link lets you import a log file from the local machine or remotely, through FTP. The Imported Log Files page shows you the list of log files imported, along with details such as the host from which it was imported, and the status of the import. Importing of archived files (.gz format) created by Firewall Analyzer and zipped log files (.zip format) are also supported.

|Microsoft ISA Proxy creates log file with new name (with time stamp appended) everyday. If the Microsoft ISA Proxy log files are to be imported, you do not have to change the filename daily, instead select the Change filename dynamically option while importing the logs. Selecting the option displays the the Filename pattern: text box to enter the time stamp pattern that the Proxy server appends when the Proxy server creates the log file daily. A help tip icon displays, (when you hover the mouse on the icon) the mapping of the Timestamp in Filename to the Pattern to be given. Enter the pattern as required.|
The supported formats for imported log files is shown below the Location box. We also support importing of archived files (.gz format) created by our Firewall Analyzer.
If you are importing an unsupported log file, a warning message is shown. You can still import the file, but records will show up when the icon is clicked on the sub tab.
The time taken to import a log file depends on its file size. Once the file has been imported successfully, the device from which it was imported is listed in the appropriate category, and the reports are generated automatically.
The Imported Log Files table shows the list of all log files imported so far. In this list, the latest imported log file will appear on the top.
The list contains the following columns:
