Version 8.1.x.x

Version, 23.09.2011

  • [1059897] If a multiprocessor database build is started from the web interface, and if it fails with an error, the parsing server processes will not exit when the main process does.
  • [1066255] When using the Salang connect()/disconnect() network features (e.g., in get_title_by_http), sockets are not closed when they disconnect, resulting in a file handle leak and eventually an error like, "Unable to create socket on port 80 of hostname xyz."
  • [1069978] Enhanced the previously-seen-data skipping algorithm. If there was a file in the log source which contained just the header, and a second file in the log source, which started with the header, but contained additional information, data from the second file could be re-processed on update. This happened because the second file was assumed to be the first file with additional data, because it started with the same data as the first file. The problem was resolved by extending the checksummed range of the second file when it was first encountered, to include the additional data.
  • [1088802] Convert a version 7 profile to version 8. Open the profile in Congfig/Reports. This causes a javascript error due empty graphs nodes in the report element.
  • [1089110] Convert a version 7 profile to version 8. Open the profile in Congfig/Log Processing. This causes a javascript error due missing log_processing.output nodes.
  • [1095674] Create a new profile, as log source select MS SQL Database (ODBC). Click Next. This will result in the error: Unknown variable 'v.fp.page_token' in expression This error has been reported by Michael via email with subject: Unknown variable 'v.fp.page_token' revisited
  • [1099313] Enhanced the previously-seen-data skipping algorithm. If there was a file in the log source which contained just the header, and a second file in the log source, which started with the header, but contained additional information, data from the second file could be re-processed on update. This is a separate enhancement from the other, similar one made in this version. In this second case, data would be re-added because two existing checksums matched the second file when it was reprocessed: the first-file checksum (header only) and the second-file checksum (entire file, as extended by the first enhancement), and Sawmill would choose between them based on which one it had seen first, which could cause it to choose the first checksum, and from that infer that the second file was the first file, but with new data, which it would then process. This problem was resolved by always choosing the larger checksum (the one checksumming more data), rather than the earlier checksum as before; this causes it to choose the second-file checksum (extended), which causes it to infer that there is no new data in the second file.

  • [1032860] Added a new option in RBAC to hide Help links.
  • [981415] City names with non-ascii characters appear garbled in the Countries report.
  • [992699] Database update gives an error, "Unexpected = in group node (saved_collected_entries.*)" for certain unusual log data.

  • [1001540] The Database Performance Options page does not appear in the Create Profile Wizard when the licensing tier is Professional.
  • [1004324] In IIS profiles, the "average time taken" field cannot be edited in the Database Fields Editor; it shows "Select aggregation method" as the aggregation method, and the proper value ("average") is not available.
  • [1004509] Palo Alto Firewall profiles ignore events in certain Kiwi syslog installations.
  • [1005040] In "-f v" debug output, curly brackets in matched regular expressions appear with an extra backslash before them.
  • [1007653] A date filter like "1week" will select the wrong portion of the week, if the current date is different from the end of the log data.
  • [1007730] If a custom delimiter is specified in Config -> Report Options -> CSV Export, visiting that page will give an error, 'setFormValue(), element with id "report_options:csv_delimiter:cutom" does not exist.'
  • [1007731] When \t is used as a CSV export delimiter, it appears literally rather than as a tab.
  • [1012167] When generating PDF from a profile which uses an HTML page header or footer with a long paragraph of text, the text does not wrap to multiple lines.
  • [1012304] In PDF reports, page footers can appear at the wrong location vertically, either directly on top of the table, or too far below it.
  • [1012312] Non-English characters (like ü) appear garbled in PDF output
  • [1012652] When using MS SQL as a back-end database, zooming on an item containing a backslash (\) will give zero results.
  • [1015345] On UNIX systems, a carefully constructed URL can cause arbitrary commands (command lines) to be executed on the server.
  • [1015350] A security vulnerability exists allowing a cross-site scripting attack through the use of a carefully crafted URL containing JavaScript code, and triggering an "encountered an error while reporting an error" condition in the web server.
  • [1015360] A malicious attacker can potentially perform Sawmill operations, if a user is logged into Sawmill while visiting a web site controlled by the attacker, and if the attacked knows the URL of the Sawmill installation.
  • [1015369] If a network action is repeatedly called via HTTPS, with username and password missing from the URL or empty, it can result in a server crash or hang.
  • [1016655] Labels are misaligned in very long-term date line graphs.
  • [1016742] If custom network actions have been executed against the Sawmill server (uncommon), the WebServerAccessLog file contains the administrator password in plain text, a potential security vulnerability.
  • [1017398] PDF generation can crash for reports containing a pie chart.
  • [1021981] When logging in directly with a URL using lun/lpw, if already logged in as another user, it does not log in as the new user, but stays logged in as the old.

  • [1048242] Improved the wording of the Session Contains filter description.
  • [1060937] Filtering the Sessions Overview on a session field (like Session Pages) gives an error, "Attempt to join sessions to sessions_join on 's.loadorder = x.loadorder', but there must be one column from each of the two tables in the ON condition, and there doesn't seem to be."

Neue Funktionen:
  • [957993] Support for SHOUTcast log format versions 1.6, 1.8 and 1.9 are now in a single plug-in. The name is "SHOUTcast Media Server / DNAS (Distributed Network Audio Server)". A Players report has been added to this plug-in. The W3C version has also changed. The Web Browsers report is not called Players, and the Spiders report is gone from the Vistor System report group. The plug-in name is now "SHOUTcast Media Server / DNAS (Distributed Network Audio Server) (W3C)".
  • [946520] Selecting Apache Custom in the log formats list gives a blank page, instead of prompting for the format string.
  • [947994] Expiring (removing) data from an profile with a back-end Oracle database gives an error, "SQL command not properly ended"
  • [955556] Indices can become corrupt on database update, causing the database to be much larger than it needs to be, and the update to take much longer than it should.
  • [960979] When expiring all rows of a database, an error can occur, "Internal: Attempt to write header for read-only table unique_loadorder."

  • [966350] In Config -> More Options -> Miscellaneous, the name of the DNS Lookup appears initially as "Support & Action Email."
  • [966655] Relative date filters like "yesterday" offset the time zone in the wrong direction on Windows, sometimes resulting in the wrong day being displayed.
  • [966926] Some PDF reports give an error when displayed with Windows Acrobat Reader, "An error exists on this page."
  • [975496] Multiple copies of the same item, differing only by case (e.g., /Dir1 and /dir1) may appear in tables, even when the field is case insensitive.
  • [975637] The "Distributed processing/Parsing server distribution method" options appear in Lite and Professional modes, though they have no effect except in Enterprise.
  • [984449] If a profile is created by a particular user, then than user is deleted, and later a new user with the same name is created, the profile is shown to have been created by the new user.

Neue Funktionen:
  • [911484] Functionality was improved in the three Palo Alto Networks Firewall plug-ins, Threat, Traffic and Integrated Threat & Traffic. The use of the "time generated" timestamp as the Date/Time field has been restored. The Integrated plug-in is now fully in sync with the others. Specifically it now has all of the numeric fields, Bytes, Packets, etc, that are in the Traffic plug-in. Support for some variations in the log format were also added.

  • [892452] Profiles which handle their own header parsing using filter_preprocessor, re-add data on a database update, if one of the log files is nothing but a header.
  • [896386] An XSS vulnerability exists, potentially allowing an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript code on another user's system.
  • [913690] Using a date filter on the Single-Page Summary gives an error like, 'Unknown configuration group "date_filter_info" in node "sessions_cache.1b41dc18092a36480b171fb9508386ec.profiles.access.report_ jobs.69931523589d08bcfe8b7dc9990d403c.report_elements.0" (030FADDC)'
  • [914013] The profiles list in the User editor is not sorted.
  • [923130] Profiles including a user-agent field can crash during database build (but usually don't).
  • [927348] If there is an extra closing parenthesis in a log filter, at the top level, the remainder of the log filter will be quietly ignored.
  • [927438] Viewing reports of Nortel ACD gives an error: 'The database field node "average_tsf" refers to the log field node "average_tsf" but this log field does not exist. It is recommended to manually correct the "average_tsf" database field node.'
  • [933940] Turning on DNS lookup in a profile created with 8.1.6 gives an error on build, "Couldn't find node hash_table_expansion_factor in profiles..database.tuning"

  • [841842] Creating and building the database of a profile with a real-time log source on Windows sometimes results in an error, "Unable to read file LogAnalysisInfo\Databases\sawmill_realtime\main\Tables\bottomleveldatebo ttomlevelitem\header.cfg (Broken link)"
  • [851291] Creating a profile with Microsoft Media Server log data, and unchecking "session events" gives an error, "Syntax error: Unknown variable 'session_events' in expression" on database build.
  • [851829] Added local time zone support for the date filter string option; defaulted to local time zone for UI date filters.
  • [860107] When using the "auto" date format, years past 2030 are considered corrupt (which is a problem for Thai log data, since Thai years are around 2553).
  • [862673] This was an escaping issue with control characters for all filter expressions added in Config (per profile, per report or per report element filter expression) or entered via the command line.
  • [868898] The Salang function current_log_pathname() returns the wrong pathname, for the first file of a multi-file log source, when using multiprocessor log processing.
  • [869075] Field values containing ASCII code 26 (control-Z) cause an error on report generation like "Unterminated quote in LogAnalysisInfo\profiles_cache\\raw_report_elements\39f3bc8e94a923143b0ef079f5dc4805.cfg at line 1282."
  • [870672] After importing a profile from v7 to v8, the Database Fields page of Config may show "Select log field" as the log field, or may not display at all.

  • [883332] Build a database with Oracle back-end, with a xref table with four or more non-aggregating fields, gives an error when indexing the xref table similar to: "create index x19_3xbx19_13xbx19_17xbx19_18xb on x19l0_0_0_0ux19 (bottomleveldate, cs_username, sc_filter_result, sc_filter_category)'; diagnostics=ODBC error: rec1: SQLstate: 37000; msg=[Oracle][ODBC][Ora]ORA-00972: identifier is too long"
  • [884348] When using an Oracle database with the Oracle client driver, if a string field has a value longer than 200 characters, but shorter than 255 characters, it will generate an error "value too long."
  • [885674] When using the internal database, main table indices can become larger and larger (more than expected) as database updates occur.
  • [886062] Building a database with an external SQL database back-end, and with a SQL prefix, results in indices with names do not include the prefix, potentially causing index name collisions on Oracle, if using multiple databases in the same server.
  • [887931] If a database field name is too long, and an external SQL database is being used, report generation will fail with an error like, "Unable to Execute ODBC Query='select x.bottomleveldate, count(x.bottomleveldate) from zxref0 x inner join zbottomleveldatebottomlevelitem b on x.bottomleveldate = b.bottomlevelitem group by x.bottomleveldate'; diagnostics=ODBC error: rec1: SQLstate: 37000; msg=[Oracle][ODBC][Ora]ORA-00972: identifier is too long." This is more common on Oracle, where any hierarchical database field longer than 15 characters will cause this error.
  • [888885] Many plug-ins, including Tomcat, show duplicate Day of Week and Hour of Day reports, both in the "Date and time" group and at the top level of the report menu.
  • [890225] The built-in function convert_charset() deallocates memory improperly, resulting in crashes or incorrect results in some cases where it is used from a custom log filter.
  • [891575] The default "web browser" is reported as "Netscape Navigator" for unknown "Mozilla" user agents (changed it to "Unknown Mozilla").
  • [894120] When a report is filtered with a filter which excludes all rows, it generates an error like, "Unable to read 304 bytes from LogAnalysisInfo/Databases//main/Tables/_select_result_21095_0/data.tbl.moved; got only 0 bytes (No such file or directory)"
  • [894684] When using a SQL table prefix with non-internal database, database export fails with an error like "Table 'profile.main_table' doesn't exist"

Neue Funktionen:
  • [712684] Slightly enhanced the Admin menu so clicking Profiles reloads the profiles list, even when already displaying the profiles list.
  • [800148] Added support for Microsoft Exchange Server log data, logged through a syslog server.
  • [814809] Extended the command-line authentication protocol so the script can print *ROLE*:N to indicate that the user logging in is part of role N (N is the internal role node name).
  • [815421] Added sorting of the Log Detail report.
  • [816854] Added a "Automatically direct to reports upon login if user accesses only one profile" to the Users editor.
  • [821749] Added support for an additional UNIX-syslog style header (after the first syslog header) in ISC DHCP log format.
  • [797770] Update a database after removing data can cause an error like, "Short read in SingleWindowCachingBuffer file LogAnalysisInfo/TemporaryFiles/Task24630/ris_main_table_x_loadorder_le_1014599626/data.tbl; tried to read 1 bytes from position 1014599626, but only got 0 bytes."
  • [798195] Creating a profile using the WarFTPalt plug-in causes a Sawmill alert, 'Unknown configuration group "destination_ip" in node "profiles.profilename.log.fields"'
  • [798479] In the Session Paths report the pages are not in chronological order.
  • [806410] Bug fixed where percentages were wrong when "Use overview for totals" was set for reports, and "Show total value" was set for columns of type Unique.
  • [808447] If Users/Roles (RBAC) has "view only" changes made to permissions, it now no longer displays a "confirm message" asking the user to save changes before leaving the page. The toolbar message is also improved to be "Your grants for this page are limited to view and changes cannot be saved."
  • [814810] When an incorrect password is entered for an SFTP log source, the error message is "unknown keyboard-interactive response: 1".
  • [816641] Fixed bug which could cause 0's in the Overview, after removing data, and updating with new data. This could also cause an error about reading past the end of a temporary file.
  • [818357] Using an FTP log source to certain versions of Pure-FTPd server can result in an error like, "Unexpected response from FTP server: 150 4.977 seconds (measured here), 0.50 Mbytes per second."
  • [823230] Bug fixed where Internet Explorer 8 shows skewed calendar months.
  • [839414] Filtering on a single second gives an error like "No date applied. The date filter '7apr1998_165306'" is invalid.'"

Version, 30.03.2010

Diese Version behebt ein Problem bei der Installation unter Windows, wenn das Visual Studio 2008 Redistributable-Paket nicht installiert war, zudem ein Problem beim Zoomen in die Logdetails und einen Fehler beim Generic W3C-Format. Neu ist die Unterstützung für neue Varianten der Formate Windows Event, FortiGate Traffic und des Astaro-Logformats.

» Produktseite » Download » Onlineshop

Neue Funktionen:
  • [686796] Support for a new Windows Event Log variant has been added. It is comma separated and has a m/d/yyyy date format. The fields are Level, Date, Time, Source, Event ID, Task Category and Message. The plug-in was tested using files from Vista logs with 24 hour times and Windows Server 2008 logs with AM/PM times.
  • [781872] Support has been added to the FortiGate Traffic Log Format plug-in for a format variation that is comma instead of space separated.
  • [799782] Added support for a format variant of the Astaro SMTP Proxy Log Format which has a single space after between the To email address and the "Reason". Other variants have a field there whose value is ignored. The result of not allowing this was rejection of most To lines (=> lines).
  • [767223] When using multiple log sources, the progress displays count of bytes processed restarts at zero for each log source, instead of showing the total cumulative bytes processed.
  • [770870] The built-in Salang function convert_charset() allocates memory equal to the string to be converted, and does not deallocate it. This can result in high memory usage over long builds, if log filters use this function.
  • [785338] After doing a "remove database data" operation, the Overview hangs for a long time with no progress display.
  • [785650] The week_of_year field uses 0 for the first week of the year, instead of 1 as documented.
  • [790229] The "config" file of a database is not updated when xrefs are rebuilt using the "-a rcrt" command-line option.
  • [791207] When using the command-line authentication script, the script is called for every click, rather than just once per login session.
  • [793905] After creating a report using "Generic W3C Web Server" as the format, reports give an error, "Unknown variable 'volatile.new_profile_name' in expression"
  • [794485] On MacOS 10.6, the "run at startup" option does not start Sawmill successfully.
  • [795215] Multiprocessor builds of profiles using the global date regular expressions option, can incorrectly reject some log entries.
  • [796244] Fixed problem where files with Kiwi ISO syslog headers autodetect as "Kiwi (mm-dd-yyyy dates)" as well as "Kiwi (ISO/Sawmill)". The ISO files have the year first (yyyy-mm-dd), so selecting the wrong syslog completely prevents the logs from parsing. Files with the year last in the date are detected as both "Kiwi (mm-dd-yyyy dates)" and "Kiwi (mm-dd-yyyy dates)" so that the correct date can be selected. Now files with the year first are only detected as "Kiwi (ISO/Sawmill)".
  • [798584] The SHOUTcast W3C Log Format plug-in did not parse correctly after encountering a second W3C field header in the same file. This bug was introduced in Sawmill 8.1.3 in a change to the plug-in that worked around for a logging problem in SHOUTcast 1.9.8.
  • [798843] Log Detail gives an error, if the number of rows in the filter set is less than the number of rows displayed in the table, like: "Unable to read 392 bytes from LogAnalysisInfo\Databases\profile\main\Tables\_select_result_1344_ 0\data.tbl.moved; got only 0 bytes".
  • [799951] The built-in Salang function collect_listed_fields() does not work properly when the divider or separate parameters are not constants.
  • [804591] When using command line authentication, logging in as root administrator causes an error like: Unknown configuration group "user_grants" in node "sessions_cache.479a3ff1bcb1ea9ba79e4f2113018196.session_info" (02705354).
  • [806853] Profile patterns entered in the Scheduler were are treated as patterns unless they are preceded by "pattern:".
  • [806929] The Windows installer does not properly install the Microsoft 2008 redistributable packages, which are required for Sawmill to start on some older versions of Windows.

Version, 12.02.2010

Neue Funktionen:
  • [704687] Merged changes from Sawmill 7 that were never replicated in Sawmill 8. This adds support for a new format variant and extracts some additional fields.
  • [717071] Added support for an all caps string instead of a hex number after the url in the Barracuda Spyware Firewall / Web Filter Log Format plug-in. This field is ignored in all cases because it's purpose is unknown.
  • [718244] Reporting of pass throughs (BP events) was added to the Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) TCP Proxy log format plug-in for WAAS 4.1.x. Counts of connection starts, pass throughs and two types of connection ends were added to the numeric fields.
  • [748047] Implemented support in the SHOUTcast W3C Log Format plug-in for a logging problem in SHOUTcast 1.9.8 which causes numeric values Play Duration, Server-to-client bytes and Average Bandwidth. The W3C log format specifies that if there is no value in a field, it must be replaced with a dash, but SHOUTcast logs sometimes have a completely empty cs-user-agent (player) field which caused the remaining fields to be shifted and the value of sc-bytes to end up in the x-duration field. The modified plug-in compensates for this problem. This is an important concern for Soundexchange RIAA reporting.
  • [742760] When the language in the Preferences does not match the language for the current user, reports can contain a mix of languages.
  • [744621] Database build, using an Oracle database, with a database field whose internal name exceeds 30 characters, fails with an error "ORA-00972: identifier is too long"
  • [752760] If all lines of log data are rejected during log processing, the resulting database, which correctly shows zeros for all values, incorrectly shows "01/Jan/1970, 1 day (entire date range)" as the date range in the Reports page.
  • [752760] The date range at the top of Reports shows 1970, when there are no entries in the database.
  • [758276] When the Log Detail is filtered, then paged, the second page data matches that of the first page.
  • [759965] Building a database with more than 64 main table indices (e.g., a default profile with more than 64 non-aggregating field) gives an error: Too many keys specified; max 64 keys allowed.
  • [763994] Apache Custom format strings containing literal \" values do not parse properly.
  • [765835] The Concurrent Session number is computed from the unfiltered session data--report filters have no effect on it.
  • [767731] The "+" operator does not match properly in regular expression log sources when using Show Matching Files in Config->Log Sources.
  • [767843] The Windows installer does not install the VC++ 2008 redistributable libraries, which can cause errors when trying to start Sawmill, if the libraries are not already installed.
  • [772469] SFTP log sources give an error "Unknown SSH server prompt 'Password: ' -- only 'Password:' is supported" on certain SFTP servers (specifically, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10).
  • [775640] Building a database with Microsoft SQL Server, in a profile with a session analysis, where the name of the session page field is "file" or some other reserved SQL keyword, gives an error like, "Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'file'."
  • [776369] When password expiration is configured in Preferences, an error occurs when the password expires: "Couldn't find node login_plugins in".
  • [776937] The Session Paths report can cycle back on itself, making sessions infinitely deep, when using the web UI.

Version, 10.12.2009

Neue Funktionen:
  • [573418] Added basic support for keyboard-interactive sshd authentication; this allows SFTP access to default FreeBSD systems, and others using keyboard-interactive with a "Password:" prompt.
  • [731045] Added support for Windows 7 detection in user-agent string.
  • [629538] When using MYSQL 5.1, database data removal fails with an error, "You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'as xusing main_table as x where (x.date_time < 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS')' at line 1"
  • [634747] Changed the way play duration is distinguished from non-play duration in the Wowza Media Server Pro plug-in. This fixes a bug in 8.1.1 where the stream duration is incorrect when there are pauses or seeks. Also restored full tracking of x_duration in the stream_duration field and added the play_duration and pause_duration numeric fields. Added check for no publishing start time because we it is possible to have no c_client_id values on unpublish events.
  • [676495] Reports show incorrect results, when zooming on multiple days in the Days report, and simultaneously zooming on multiple items in some other report.
  • [680285] Profile creation fails, when using Aventail Client Server log format, with an error, "Could not find main_report_field_name in log format report description 'connect_tunnel_sessions_overview'".
  • [686802] When using the Microsoft ODBC for Oracle driver, Sawmill gets an error on database build: Internal Error: Attempt to get SQL_DOUBLE value from a SQL_DECIMAL ODBC table column: 0. Note: with this bug fix, this error no longer occurs; however, other errors may occur because Sawmill requires an ODBC 3 driver, and the Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle does not support ODBC 3 (it supports only ODBC 2). Therefore, do not use this driver with Sawmill; instead use the Oracle Client driver (provided by Oracle), or another third-party ODBC driver for Oracle.
  • [686819] Building a database in a profile with session information, using an Oracle back-end database with the Oracle Client driver, gives an error, "Internal Error: currentBufferColumn=8 in UploadChunk() for sessions_update."
  • [686901] If two reports are run simultaneously against a real-time database, the second report can "collide" with the resuming database build, causing various errors.
  • [688118] Database xref tables, in the internal database, are much larger on disk that they need to be, for some datasets.
  • [691995] Internal database indices skip a row when being updated. Among other possible effects, this can cause one day of data to be missing from the reports, and the Date Picker.
  • [692073] The order of log sources in Config -> Log Source is not permanently saved when they are manually reordered.
  • [693811] The name of the plug-in the Generic W3C Log Format has changed to Generic W3C Web Server Log Format to indicate the basic kinds of fields it expects to find. The way fields are created has been changed overcome a bug where the creation of some derived fields with functions caused an error because the database fields did not exist.
  • [699372] A Microsoft SQL Server log source give the error "Invalid log source. Numeric valid out of range" when one of the selected columns is a BIGINT, and one of the values is larger than about 2 billion.
  • [703189] Use of "create_many_profiles" gives an error: "Syntax error: Unknown operator in expression" due to a syntax error at the keyword "string".
  • [707419] HTTPS does not work on Windows (it starts an HTTP server instead).
  • [707422] Database updates using an Oracle database server give an error, "ORA-00001: unique constraint (STAT.LOADORDER) violated"
  • [710643] Double-quoted W3C fields values which with with a literal double-quote (escaped as two double quotes), e.g. appearing literally in the log data as """"hello""" to indicate a value of a double-quoted value hello, are treated as an empty value.
  • [713843] Importing the database of a Sawmill 7 profile using MySQL, and changing the database name during import, gives an error, "Table '.locationitemnum' doesn't exist at ../src/run.cpp:2768"
  • [717967] Database updates can crash during the index build/merge step, for very large datasets.
  • [725411] The Overview report in the Single-page Summary sometimes shows incorrect average bandwidth values.
  • [737620] ISA CSV log data is very slow to process, due to a problem normalizing the highly unique filter_info field.
  • [741574] With IronPort C-Series logs, relayed SBRS events are reported as "rejected."
  • [743313] Filtered date/time reports can display graphs from previous cached filtered versions of the report, instead of the correct graph.

  • [580204] Added an option to rename a profile from the web interface.
  • [604421] Enhanced documentation search to show a match when any word in the phrase matches, instead of requiring the whole phrase to match.
  • [610256] Added a new custom action, convert_version_7_user, to convert users from a Sawmill 7 installation using the command line.
  • [637041] Added support for HTTPS in Sawmill's built-in web server.

  • [637549] Added new support, or enhanced existing support, for the following log formats: AIX messages, Citrix NetScaler, Clearswift MIMEsweeper, Juniper Netscreen, Kingdon Firewall, Marshal8e6 Content Appliance, Open WebMail, Watchguard Firebox XTM.
  • [643222] Added a plug-in to support the Pure FTP (Syslog) Log Format. The syslog format is the typical Unix daemon format and is different enough from the standalone version of the format that a separate plug-in is required.
  • [655308] Added support for two types of events from Citrix Netscaler 9.0 to the Citrix Netscaler Log Format plug-in. Also increased the number of types of 8.x events that are supported.
  • [567010] Switching between "single color" and "numerical field color" in Config/Report Options/Graph Color Schemes sometimes has no immediate effect in the report output; if there is a cached report with the old setting, it is still used.
  • [591276] Many of the Database Tuning options have no effect, and should be removed from the web UI.
  • [597332] Reports show no rows when using a comparison filter (e.g., >=, <=, <, >) on a field which is the same as the main field of the table, but when the table is not showing bottom-level items. In particular, this happens when using a date range filter on the Years or Months report.
  • [603582] A version 7 profile put in the version 8 profiles directory (instead of being imported properly) gives a cryptic error: 'Unknown configuration group "server" in node "profiles.my_v7_profile_1.database.options"' instead of a better error like "you can't put a v7 profile in your v8 profiles directory."
  • [605703] Zyxel Firewall Welf profiles are missing some of their Security reports.
  • [613325] Parsing regular expressions extract log fields only as far as the first non-matching ()? section, if one or more of the ()? sections does not match.
  • [613884] Running "remove database data" for an internal-database profile, from the Scheduler, gives an error, "Error parsing SSQL query; expected ')'; found ''.
  • [614397] Shoutcast W3C profiles can give an error: Unknown configuration group "session_event_type" in node "profiles..log.fields"
  • [617076] If the Log Detail report has been customized to include a non-timestamp date/time field, it will generate an error when exported to CSV, e.g. "Attempt to read beyond end of LogAnalysisInfo\Databases\\main\items\date_time\offsets_by_num (fileSize=4000); attempted to read from 669806112 to 669806116."
  • [619197] The Overview report shows incorrect numbers (approximately double the correct values), when filtered with a NOT filter on a single value.

  • [623023] The encrypted source compilation fails with an error about unknown symbols, when ODBC is enabled, and ODBC driver manager headers and libraries are installed.
  • [623070] Sawmill 7 profiles with session information give the error, "Unknown database field "ssession_entrances" in cross-reference group," on database build or report generation, when converted to Sawmill 8 profiles.
  • [623118] Unique numerical fields (like "visitors") show 0 or a sum in the Total row by default, instead of the intended "-".
  • [629646] In CGI mode on Windows, when using a temporary directory/URL, CGI export fails with an error: Unknown fileref file 'csv_export\username\profile\reportname.csv'
  • [630805] Fixed a bug which could cause database corruption when using a database created and updated with Sawmill 8.0.8 or earlier, and updating it with Sawmill 8.0.9. Possible error messages include, "Attempt to read beyond end of LogAnalysisInfo\Databases\\main\Tables\xref\sets\\lists.dat (fileSize=); attempted to read from to " and "Unable to allocate 4294967292 bytes of memory ()" (or similar large number).
  • [633524] Cisco Netflow profiles give an error, "Can't find tableAlias=, fieldName=start_time" when the database is built.
  • [635081] SFTP support is not enabled in the binary distribution for x86 Linux (ES/AS 5).
  • [636792] The field_length parameter to database fields, which specifies the maximum length of the database field value in characters, does not appear in the web interface.
  • [637463] If a database update finds no new lines in the log data, future updates will not update their cross-reference tables correctly. This causes the newest data to be missing from the date range, Calendar, Database Info, unfiltered Overview, and other unfiltered top-level reports.
  • [638943] Creating a profile using the border_manager or iisweb_with_syslog plug-in gives an error, "Unknown variable 'util.parse_w3c' in expression".
  • [649962] If the profile name is too long when using an Oracle database, the database build fails with an error about the length of an index name.
  • [649978] Regular expression report filters on an Oracle profile give an error about "regexp binary."
  • [650092] Oracle Database builds use hundreds of cursors, and do not clean them up properly, which can cause the build to fail with a "too many cursors" error.
  • [656549] Columns do not line up properly in emailed table-with-subtable reports--numerical columns are one column to the left of their header.
  • [660518] Removing database data, then viewing a report which requires an index, sometimes gives an error like, "Internal: found leftrownum 1303 in index LogAnalysisInfo/Databases/ae/main/Tables/main_table/indices/mt_hit_type, but the table only has 1301 rows"
  • [663015] A "remove database data" operation on an internal database does not properly track what data is new when updating xref tables, resulting in some data being missing from top-level reports.

Version 8.0.9, 23.06.2009

» Produktseite » Download » Onlineshop

Neue Funktionen:
  • [569464] Added support for a new format variant of the NcFTP Xfer log. For now, the new fields at the end of each line are being ignored.
  • [584392] Added support for overriding the port of SFTP, by using "hostname:port" in the hostname field.
  • [532124] Filtered reports show higher numbers than unfiltered reports, when using "is NOT" filters.
  • [532124] The description of report filters sometimes contains a "not" even when it isn't a "not" filter, if there is also another filter which is a "not" filter.
  • [554819] Multiprocessor database builds create zombie processes on UNIX systems, which last for the duration of the build; on systems with very few processes available, this can cause errors during build, including, "Error spawning process for multi-threaded SSQL query split."
  • [584458] The sort_by (-sb) and sort_direction (-sd) command line options for "-a ect" are not documented.
  • [586149] Profiles with duplicate labels are allowed by the Create Profile Wizard
  • [590678] Log detail report is very slow, when using with a large internal database and no filters.
  • [591432] The update.pl script in the Extras folder does not copy the system.cfg file, so installations updated with that script rerun the installation process.
  • [591629] Scheduled tasks with a single profile, and multiple actions, run all actions simultaneously, instead of running them in sequence.
  • [592187] Database indices, and unique-tracking lists, can become corrupted on 32-bit systems, when processing large datasets (typically, any dataset which would require an index > 2GB, though it could happen as low as 600MB). This can give various errors about "array caches" or "ranges."
  • [592295] When using file-by-file distributed parsing, and "skip previously seen files on update," the list of previously-seen files is not recorded properly, resulting in some files being re-processed on update.
  • [595619] Imported v7 profiles show integers in the sum row of "start time" or "end time" columns, instead of showing "-".
  • [596194] When filtered, the Sessions Overview sometimes shows a negative number for "sessions for one-time users", and shows a few other incorrect values.
  • [596597] Database fields with large aggregated values (more than about 10 billion) incorrectly show very small values (< 10) in the Overview.
  • [596753] The current_log_pathname() function returns the wrong pathname for some log lines, when using multiprocessor database builds.
  • [597095] Removing database data with a date range in a MS SQL database gives an error, "Invalid column name."
  • [597455] Database indices can become corrupt on update, when using the internal database. This can cause errors when displaying filtered reports, or errors during future database updates. Possible error messages include "Unable to allocate N bytes of memory (Reallocating array cache)", "Internal: list N in IntegerLists X ends with -M, which is the start of a range", and possible others.
  • [597949] In real-time profiles, reports hang at 33% during the initial database build, if the build is using parsing servers (multiple processors), or if the file-by-file option is turned on.
  • [597953] Date filter expressions containing capital letters give an error, "Date filter not valid."
  • [598038] Log format plug-ins which use "collected listed", where field values are quoted (e.g., Fortigate), ignore the values immediately after quoted fields.
  • [601338] Cross-reference tables of imported Sawmill 7 profiles do not contain numerical session fields, resulting in slow report generation.
  • [601365] Regular expression or wildcard filters on the "hour of day" or "day of week" field are displayed incorrectly in the yellow filter description at the top of reports, as "corrupt date/time".
  • [601810] Database updates applied to databases imported from Sawmill 7, or to databases using non-internal database servers, do not propagate the new data to the xref tables in some cases, resulting in reports which do not have the latest data.

Version 8.0.8, 20.05.2009

» Produktseite » Download » Onlineshop

Neue Funktionen:
  • Added tracking of the "action type" field in Barracuda Spyware Firewall / Web Filter Log Format.
  • Improved the performance of database building for large Postfix datasets, and probably other large datasets, by defaulting to keep itemnums in memory, and to use rand_hash as the itemnums hashing function when none is specified.
  • Added documentation of the custom actions (-a command line options) in LogAnalysisInfo/actions, so the -a section of the option documentation.
  • Improved progress for index builds, to show the number of indices built, and the total number to build.
  • Improved performance of filtered reports using indices on the main table (which is generally any filtered report other than those using date/time filtering).
  • Improved performance of loading large normalization tables--this improves the performance of hierarchy table builds, and probably some reports also, especially when fields have a huge number of unique values.
  • Improved progress display during build of hierarchy tables.
  • Added a new custom action create_user (-a cu) for creating or updating users from the command line.
  • Improved performance of database updates with external SQL database server, by enhancing itemnum upload to upload only new itemnums on database update, instead of re-uploading the whole list for every update.
  • The "Lookup pages" link in "Paths through a page" gives an error, "Syntax error: Unknown variable 'xyz' in expression," with certain datasets.
  • The return address option for Action emails in the profile is not editable from the web interface.
  • Database fields with identical labels (but different internal names) cannot be distinguished in the web UI.
  • Building a database from Quicktime Streaming Server log data which has no cs-uri-stem field gives an error, "Can't find tableAlias=main_table, fieldName=cs_uri_stem in table main_table".
  • Information about the extra MaxMind databases (Organization, ISP, and Domain) is missing from the documentation.
  • Salang truncates fractional floating point numbers to 6 decimal points, when converting them to strings, and also unnecessarily converts parameters to strings and back when calling subroutines. This could cause graphs percentages to incorrectly show 0%.
  • PDF report generation from the Scheduler on Windows gives an error if the pathname contains "\r"
  • CSV files sometimes parse incorrectly when using multiprocessor parsing--headers are not distributed properly to all processes, resulting in some log lines being ignored.
  • ODBC log sources do not support TINYINT fields.
  • The Help link in reports replaces the current report with the documentation (instead of just opening a window with the documentation in it).
  • The Advanced licensing tier is still mentioned in the trial mode page, and the trial mode menu.
  • Charset conversion does not occur on CSV export from the command line
  • The "remove data" action does not complain when the -df option is used; it does not support the -df option, so it should throw an error message if -df is attempted.
  • The Calendar report fails or crashes, if there is no data (no accepted entries) in the database.
  • The Create Profile Wizard hangs at the database page (won't click past it), if the log format has only one numerical field.
  • Report generation can hang when using the internal database, if a report contains more than one column displaying the same "unique" field.
  • Verbose filter (-v f) output causes an error ("unknown value") when used with replace_last().
  • Database date range is reported incorrectly when all xref tables are disabled.
  • Creating a profile using Cisco NetFlow (flow-export) format gives an error: Unknown configuration group "location" in node "profiles.*.log.fields"
  • Emails sent by Sawmill from Windows systems have an incorrect SMTP Date header (off by one hour).
  • The .= operator does not work on log fields.
  • Several report filter examples involving date ranges, in the documentation, contain syntax or usage errors.
  • Customizations to spiders.cfg are overwritten when upgrading
  • The date_filter option "1day" selects the most recent day from now, rather than selecting the most recent day of the log data.
  • Building a database from Firewall-1 NG (text export) Log Format gives an error, "Unknown variable 'elapsed' in expression," if the exported data does not contain an "elapsed" field.
  • Import of Sawmill 7 database fails with the error "Syntax error in line ... of file ...; no '=' in itemnum record" when one of the items in the database contains a literal line break character.
  • The CFG newsletter documentation refers to "1" when it should refer to "$1".
  • The DSN parameter is not saved by the Config section of the profile.
  • The options in "Admin > Preferences > Support & Action Email" show no "i" icon documentation.

Version 8.0.7, 17.04.2009

» Produktseite » Download » Onlineshop

Neue Funktionen:
  • [538958] Added a -pp ("path page") command-line option for specifying the focus page for command-line export of the Paths Through A Page report.
  • [539823] Added better detection of mobile web browsers.
  • [541059] Enhanced Firewall-1 (fw log -ftn export) Log Format to handle logs with lines starting with dates; added some new fields.
  • [545835] Added support for Linksys VPN Router log format

  • [548920] Enhanced support for IPtraf logs, to support a variant with single-digit days.
  • [550396] Improved performance of report generation in most cases. This is partly due to an increase in the default value of the "maximum paging caching buffer memory usage", and partly due to other optimizations. Profiles will benefit most when setting "maximum paging caching buffer memory usage" to the new default value of 64MB. In one example (a large pivot table), report generation speed increased from 13 minutes to 2 minutes; memory usage increased by less than 2x.
  • [553685] Improved progress reporting for cross-reference builds and index builds, to show more granular progress while building each xref table or index (especially when using the internal database).
  • [520725] Common Access Log profiles with large datasets use a huge amount of memory on database builds.
  • [528835] The parser adds "{default}" to the end of any log field value which ends in the hierarchy divider specified by its log field, even if the field is not hierarchical. I.e., {default} or "(default page)" sometimes appears unexpectedly in reports of non-hierarchical, non-page fields.
  • [529667] Some strings in the web interface are in English, even when non-English translations are used.
  • [533349] Ironport C Series reports do not show recipients when message rewriting occurs in the log data.
  • [534986] Session ID reports appear as integers in the Individual Sessions report, on profiles where the session ID is computed by log filters, instead of appearing as the computed value.
  • [535446] The IPC folder of LogAnalysisInfo collects many files with names HTTPRequest*, which linger for hours; these could be cleaned up much sooner.
  • [535576] Building a database for a MS SQL profile will give an error like, "drop the index 'main_table.mt_field_name', because it does not exist in the system catalog," if another profile, or a profile using different prefix/suffix, has used that same database to build a Sawmill database in the past.
  • [536085] Firewall-1 NG (text export) Log Format format does not support hh:mm:ss format for the "elapsed" field.
  • [536108] Database builds started from Config -> Database Info immediately display a "build completed" page, before the build is actually completed, when a profile is "real time."
  • [536525] PDF report generation sometimes crashes on x64 Windows.
  • [538883] Filters created in the Filters window using "is NOT item name" appear as "is item name" in the filter description of the report.
  • [539107] During a multiprocessor database build, the IPC folder of LogAnalysisInfo collects several files with names like ParsingServerPort_*.done, which linger for days; these could be cleaned up much sooner.
  • [539683] PDF export fails from the scheduler when using a drive letter in the pathname, with an error like "Can't create directory c: (File exists)".
  • [539696] Session duration shows 0 for profiles without a session ID field, and with "maximum session duration" set to 0.
  • [539814] Individual Sessions report of imported Sawmill 7 profile gives error, "Unable to read file LogAnalysisInfo/Databases/mms_pub_imported/main/Tables/ssession_idsubitem/header.cfg".
  • [540871] Deleting a database field does not delete it from all cross-references tables.
  • [541655] Schedules configured to "update all profiles" run all updates simultaneously, rather than sequentially.
  • [541975] The "Creating Many Profile in a Batch" topic is missing from the FAQ.
  • [543436] Some command line operations give the rather cryptic error message "Couldn't find node licenses in" when there is no license installed.
  • [543560] When using Firefox, page formatting is messed up if a report is generated, the server is stopped, the Admin page is accessed, the server is started, and the Admin page is accessed again.
  • [543657] Profiles with a field named "level" give an error "invalid identifier" when used with Oracle.
  • [543851] An internal string management issue could cause crashes during database builds or updates, when using a SQL database server.
  • [544036] The "Session ID" profile option is not customizable in the web UI.
  • [544295] Database updates can give an error, "Unable to allocate X bytes of memory (allocating preconversion buffer)" where X is a huge number.
  • [545134] Running the Windows installer to upgrade overwrites the preferences.cfg and default_profile.cfg files from the previous installation.
  • [546690] The label of the report element filter field has a typo: "epxression"
  • [548666] Log data with pseudo-W3C headers starting with "# Date\tTime" (like some Exchange 2000 logs) does not parse, resulting in empty reports.
  • [550414] Exporting PDF tables containing certain data can give an error, "Unknown HTML entity"
  • [553375] Improved performance of building indices, for the internal database, for large datasets.
  • [553713] Memory usage can be very high on profiles using the internal database, with very complex fields (fields with many unique values).

Version 8.0.6, 19.03.2009

» Produktseite » Download » Onlineshop

Neue Funktionen:
  • A new option has been added for doing LOAD DATA imports into local MySQL database servers, which is faster than the default LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE, and works on servers where local infile is disabled, but requires the MySQL server to be on the Sawmill server.
  • A new variant of Unix Daemon Messages log format is now supported.
  • The name of the Sawmill executable has been changed to just "sawmill" on non-Windows platforms, instead of having the version number in the name.
  • Sawmill now determines the amount of physical RAM on the system, and when splitting queries across multiple threads with "auto," it ensures that each thread has at least 2GB of RAM.
  • A new option, "maximum read block size," controls how much memory can be allocated to holding a single line of log data.
