View Your Web Servers Log Files With ASP - Conclusion
(Page 5 of 5 )

Using the MSWC.IISLog class, you can easily create web pages, ActiveX controls, COM+ components, or even XML representations of your web servers log file(s). Shown below is a list of some things that you might want to try:
  • Add a record-paging feature to the ShowLogDetails sub-routine described in this article. Allow the user to page forward and backwards through the log entries using “Previous” and “Next” buttons.
  • Create a COM+ component in Visual Basic that will allow you to enter a date. Using this date, make the COM+ component automatically retrieve the log file for that day and return the results as a string of well-formed, valid XML.
  • Create an ASP script that will automatically extract your log entries and write them to a database. You can use the WriteLogRecord method of the MSWC.IISLog class to help you do this easily.
