Re: Tools to Analyse Logs in Checkpoint NG

There is one package called Sawmill that claims to examine logs from CheckPoint.
I never had much luck with it...but you may have more luck.  The only downside
is that you have to export the logs to a file before Sawmill will be able to use
it.

WebTends sells a REALLY nice package for about $2500 that will analyze the hell
out of the logs.  Their product will connect live to the firewall and examine
them on the fly with no need to export the logs.

I say spend the money and get that one especially for multiple firewalls.

Good luck and let us know what you find.

Subject:  Tools to Analyse Logs in Checkpoint NG





Hi all,

I am wondering if anybody has or have come across any scripting tools
or good freeware package that can be used to analyse Checkpoint NG
Firewall Log files. I'm faced  with the task that I have several
firewalls
that I wish to produce reports on things like attack info from
Smartdefence, attacks, usage, top talkers and all that fancy stuff.
Hopefully
someone may have come across something that could be used or easily
modified to perform this rather than having to write my own scripts. I
have
looked in brief at WebTrends and I don't feel that it is granular
enough for what I want

thanks
