Sawmill is a GNU Samba log analyzer (it also supports the 1004 other log formats listed to the left).
It can process log files
in GNU Samba format, and generate dynamic statistics from them,
analyzing and reporting events.
Sawmill can parse GNU Samba logs, import them into a MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, or Oracle database (or its own built-in database),
aggregate them, and generate dynamically filtered reports, all through a web interface.
Sawmill can perform GNU Samba log analysis on any platform, including Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS, Solaris, other UNIX, and others.
