When you open an IIS-format file in a text editor, the entries are similar to the following examples:
192.168.114.201, -, 03/20/01, 7:55:20, W3SVC2, SALES1, 172.21.13.45, 4502, 163, 3223, 200, 0, GET, /DeptLogo.gif, -,
172.16.255.255, anonymous, 03/20/01, 23:58:11, MSFTPSVC, SALES1, 172.16.255.255, 60, 275, 0, 0, 0, PASS, /Intro.htm, -,
In the previous example, the first entry indicates that an anonymous user with the IP address of 192.168.114.201 issued an HTTP GET command for the image file /DeptLogo.gif at 7:55 A.M. on March 20, 2001, from a server named SALES1 at IP address 172.21.13.45. The 163-byte HTTP request had an elapsed processing time of 4502 milliseconds (4.5 seconds) to complete, and returned, without error, 3223 bytes of data to the anonymous user.
In the log file, all property fields are terminated with a comma (,). A hyphen (-) acts as a placeholder if there is no valid value for a property.
