Sawmill is a Microsoft IAS/NPS log analyzer (it also supports the 1021 other log formats listed to the left). It can process log files in Microsoft IAS/NPS format, and generate dynamic statistics from them, analyzing and reporting events. Sawmill can parse Microsoft IAS/NPS 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 Microsoft IAS/NPS log analysis on any platform, including Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS, Solaris, other UNIX, and others.
