    • Hello Margriet,
      Great tool! Is there a way to merge the results from 2 WFE's, or would I have to do this manually?
      Best regards,
      The Doctor
    • Well, you can direct sfwr to read a single log file or to a folder, in which case it reads every log file in it thereby combining results of multiple WFEs, if their log files were in the same folder.
  • Great !!!

    • we have a need to show Most viewed Pages,Top visitors in SharePoint 2013 site. will this work for SharePoint 2013?
    • Sure. The tool just takes a look at IIS log settings and isn't dependent upon a specific version of SharePoint. Having said that, I've only tested it for sps 2007, 2010, and 2013.
  • IIS log imported completed but target folder is empty
    2 Posts | Last post September 13, 2013
      Script is running successfully but the target folder is empty. 
      IIS log files are enabled i can see them at c:\inetpub\logs\logfiles
       Can you please help me to find what could be the issue.
    • Results are written to the location where sfwr is located, not to the target folder. Please check that location.

      Failed to import W3C IIS log files
    • This is normal. I use the DLR to create in-memory objects, so I'm able to query them later to produce reports. But... there's a limit to the amount of objects that can be handled by .NET, so that's why you're getting this error.
      What I suggest you do is this: split the IIS log files in smaller batches using a tool such as GSplit. Then, analyze those. That's what I do, when needed. Make sure the batches are logical, e.g., if there's a lot of traffic, I create batches for every hour, 2 hours, 4 hours or as needed.
  • .NET Framework : v4.0

    • Just trying to use this application but it showing error message "To run this application, you first must install one of the following version of the .NET Framework: v4.0"
      Please suggest!!
    • This application uses parallel programming found in the .NET 4 framework. So, as the error messages said, you need to have it installed in order to run sfwr.
  • Output formats?
    2 Posts | Last post September 13, 2013
    • Can there be options to output in other formats (ie. CSV)?
    • Good suggestion, but for now I haven't built this in.
  • Failed to import W3C IIS log files
    2 Posts | Last post August 30, 2013
    • Hello there,
      Keep getting "Failed to import W3C IIS log files" when I enter the command "sfwr.exe 100 c:\logs\temp".
      Please help :)
    • Hi Sid,
      You are not providing LOG path of IIS folder or you can try puting all logs files in  c:\logs\temp this path only.
