The book is written by the author of the tool. The tool's interface appears simple. The power of it is revealed in the variety of uses to which it can be put -- those uses involve the sophisticated command variations possible. The book reveals precisely this.
If you're overwhelmed by system information and how to monitor that without a bunch of 3rd party tools, take a look at Log Parser. It may be just what you need.
Syngress was acquired by Elsevier Publishing. The source files are now available at [...]
1. many pages in the book use a dark gray background with black text to highlight ideas - its hard to read, not enough contrast.
2. Not found anything in the book that isn't already on the web - in large numbers, with hundreds (thousands) of sites churning the same information (welcome to the internet). But it is still a valuable resource for writing scripts.
Within minutes I had several scripts in production and was on my way to writing much more complex queries to squeeze every drop of valuable data from my logs. I'm querying IIS logs, Event Logs, CSV files and more with ease.
I've got this book at my side any time I go to write a new script. I would definitely recommend it to others.
Many of the examples are aimed at maintaining and improving security. I found the techniques described helpful for chasing linked defects in a multiple-machine server farm.
Unfortunately, the examples from the book are no longer available on the publisher's web site.
If I were to write this book, I would make it easier to understand with ample examples. It's better than Log Paser's Help, but not by a whole lot. I believe that technical books should be reasonably easy to understand - even by the non-technical.
My 3 star rating is just my opinion/experience. Others may find this book to be just the ticket.
