Howdy,
 
I haven't seen a clear suggestion on what might be used for parsing the activity logs, does any one have any suggestions?
 
Long term I'd love the logs in a db, where I can get a web interface to search to see why things are blocked etc. Any pointers?
 
Thanks!

Their sample site seems to be down, this is what it give me:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<html><head>
<title>500 Internal Server Error</title>
</head><body>
<h1>Internal Server Error</h1>
<p>The server encountered an internal error or
misconfiguration and was unable to complete
your request.</p>
<p>Please contact the server administrator,
sawmill@flowerfire.com and inform them of the time the error occurred,
and anything you might have done that may have
caused the error.</p>
<p>More information about this error may be available

Here's what I get:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD>
<META content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv=Content-Type></HEAD>
<BODY><PRE></PRE></BODY></HTML>

Which is really an empty page, if you look through the tags.

Thanks for the links guys. I put the SpamFilter in front of my barracuda. We have over 700,000 emails per day, so this helps cut down what the cuda's can handle. What I was hoping was I could take the logs from the SpamFilter and get the same type of log filtering at I can on the cudas. Sometimes we have to research why a message was dropped and adjust.

Has anyone whipped a web interface?

Barracuda is inferior to SpamFilter, as it doesn't filter spam on connection level. At least, that's what I heard of it.

You can enable quarantine DB and decide which emails you want to save (by rejected error code). But normally you wouldn't need it. We're up for about a week and there seem to be no false positives so far.
