All,
 
For those who have not read the previous posts on log parsing,  I have been using "Sawmill" (http://www.sawmill.net) to parse my logs.  Sawmill has many, many log types that it can parse and for those of us that can't leave well enough alone, it is very customizable.  I have re-written the "Log File Format" filter to match up with the latest SpamFilter log format and the folks at Sawmill have included it in their latest build.
 
I mention this because, as you know, statistics of the SpamFilter database only expose what is in the quarantine "now", and also doesn't contain any of the very useful information that the SpamFilter logs keep track of.   This has become a "can't live without" tool for us.  It is well worth taking a look at.
 
My latest filter (For Sawmill Version 7) can be retrieved at http://spamman.mags.net/sawmill/logsat_spam_filter_isp.cfg
(updated cfg 04-19-2005)
 
Regards,

SawMill 7.2.1

Spamfilter ISP 2.7.1.511

I do not know what you mean with plug-in version. I have downloaded SawMill yesterday so it has to be the newest one.

Tom,

Please check the file "logsat_spam_filter_isp.cfg".   The first couple of lines should read:

logsat_spam_filter_isp = {

# The name of the log format

# Updated to match new log entries - Dec-30-2005 Dan Seligmann, Mags Net, LLC

log.format.format_label = "LogSat SpamFilterISP Log Format B500.8"

Regards,
