Microsoft ISA Server Diagnostic Logging Viewer

The ISA Server Diagnostic Logging Viewer is a command-line tool for easily viewing and querying log entries generated by the diagnostic logging feature introduced in Microsoft® Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) 2004 Service Pack 3. The tool builds queries for filtering diagnostic logging events based on the command-line options that you select, and then uses Log Parser 2.2 to perform the filtering.

The output can be displayed in the Command Prompt window or in a graphical window opened by Log Parser, or it can be saved as an HTML file that can be opened in a browser application, such as Internet Explorer. Output that is displayed in a browser application can be filtered further to obtain the log entries related to a specific logging context.
