Directory Server Log Analyzer 0.0.3.1 released

Version 0.0.3.1 of Directory Server Log Analyzer has been released. This version has a re-worked presentation of the data from an uploaded file. There is also some additional language on the upload page to describe how to use cURL to upload files directly to the application, which is repeated here:


 curl -F 'uploadedFile=@access' \\
    --form-string hostname=example.com \\
    --form-string description="a description of the file" 
    --form-string instance="the name of the instance" \\
    http://www.example.com:8080/dsla/FileUploaded.action > /dev/null

The command line above uploads a file named "access", provides a hostname, description, and the name of the instance where the access file was generated. Hostname, description and instance name could be omitted, in which case suitable defaults are provided. Use the correct application server hostname and port, obviously. The field named "uploadFile" is required, and must be named "uploadFile". Download the application WAR file from the download area at http://kenai.com and deploy into GlassFish or Tomcat under contextroot "dsla".

Mockup of new report page for Directory Server Log Analyzer 0.0.3.1

The report page had become very spaced-out and hard to read: too much white space, not enough data. Here is a mockup of my proposed changes:

Directory Server Log Analyer 0.0.1.3 released

The 0.0.1.3 release of the OpenDS Directory Server Access Log Analyzer has been released at http://kenai.com/projects/dsla. This version is very minimalist, and only supports OpenDS access logs, has no persistent storage, and is probably as buggy as my back deck in summertime. It has been more or less tested with access logs from OpenDS 1.0 and 1.3 collected from some performance testing that was conducted in August 2008 and from interested users. This version reports:

  • count of LDAP operations
  • maximum etime
  • minimum etime
  • average etime
  • number of occurrences of etimes

If anyone has some access log files from any version of OpenDS, please send me some snippets so that my testing can continue.

Future releases will contain support for various databases (LDAP, BDB, and MySQL), a directory scanner to pick up new access logs generated by OpenDS, and a way to send files to the software without using the administrative interface, and whatever other features that are deemed useful. Also, support for other directory server software such as Sun's DIrectory Server Enterprise Edition and OpenLDAP will be added.
Interested parties should join the mailing lists at http://kenai.com/projects/dsla/lists, report defects at https://kenai.com/bugzilla/buglist.cgi?product=dsla, and contribute code.

This first working version is named 0.0.1.1, is very minimalist, and only supports OpenDS access logs, has no persistent storage, and is probably as buggy as the US Embassy in Moscow.

This version reports the number, maximum, minimum and average etimes for most LDAP operations. All are welcome to use it and test it.
