IIS Log Archiver
Thunder & Lightening // Summer 2009
Introducing the IIS Log Archiver - just a little program I knocked up to archive those ever increasing log files from IIS websites.
It will automatically scan through and list all the website log folders in IIS on the local machine.
Use the filter to limit the list to log folders from a particiular drive or site.
The folders listed are the ones which will be affected.
Press the Archive button to archive all the listed log folder(s).
The application will scan all the .log files in the folder, check their dates and will
archive them into monthly zip files. It only ever archives log files from historic months.
Press the Extract button to extract all the listed log folder(s).
The application will extract all files from all .zip files found in the listed log folder(s).
You can also run the application using the following arguments:
- Automatically starts the archive process.
- Automatically starts the extraction process.
- Runs the application in silent mode - no GUI will be displayed.
- -f abc
- Used to filter logs by the folder path.
The following example will silently archive all logs with a folder path containing "d:\websites"
>> IISLogArchiver.exe -a -s -f d:\websites
