Parsing OWA Logs 
Modified By Walker  on 10/22/2009 1:44:19 PM)

 OWA logs are useful and you need to keep an eye on them to make sure that your server is only being used by people who should be using it, but going through the logs manually can be a chore.

Here using the 'findstr' command can come in useful to limit the information to what you want to see.  FindStr is the poor mans windows equivalent of the 'grep' command from the Unix world.

If you open up a command prompt and change directory to the logs directory, you can use the following command to output a more readable logfile with just the entries you will be interested in:

findstr /l "POST /Inbox/" ex000000.log | more

Where you replace 'ex000000.log' with the logfile you wish to examine.  Note well that the command line is case sensitive.

What this will do is cut down the information to just the logins and what they did.
