Log Parser Lizard

Recently I’ve been working a bit with Log Parser Lizard and it’s been very helpful.

You can take log files, import them, pick the expected format, and then query them in a SQL style manner.

So for example, I took a bunch of IIS log files and was able to easily run this query against it:

SELECT *
FROM 'C:\Users\Chris\Downloads\www-logs\*.log'
where sc-status = 404 and cs-uri-stem <> '/AzureFileHandler.ashx'
and cs-uri-stem <> '/js/jquery.1.11.1.min.js'

 

Pretty cool

Problems serving .svc in IIS 8 on Windows 8

I recently had some problems running telerik Sitefinity on my dev machine.  When I clicked on the Pages menu, it would give me a popup telling me that IIS 8.0 returned a 404.

All the help online talked about reregistering the WCF stuff using Servicemodelreg.exe, but doing that seemed to screw stuff up even more.  Others also talked about using aspnet_regiis, but that doesn’t work in Windows 8.

Finally, I found this post that dealt with the exact issue.  Adding the WCF Services under Turn Windows features on or off worked perfectly.
