Sawmill is a GNU ipchains log analyzer (it also supports the 1021 other log formats listed to the left).
It can process log files
in GNU ipchains format, and generate dynamic statistics from them,
analyzing and reporting events.
Sawmill can parse GNU ipchains 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 ipchains log analysis on any platform, including Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS, Solaris, other UNIX, and others.
Sawmill stores the following non-numerical fields in its database for GNU ipchains, generates reports for each field, and allows dynamic filtering on any combination of these fields:
|Field|| ||Internal Name|
| ||date/time|| ||date_time|
| ||day of week|| ||day_of_week|
