Sawmill is a Microsoft DNS Server log analyzer (it also supports the 1021 other log formats listed to the left). It can process log files in Microsoft DNS Server format, and generate dynamic statistics from them, analyzing and reporting events.

Sawmill can perform Microsoft DNS Server log analysis on any platform, including Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS, Solaris, other UNIX, and others.
