What are the minimum fields required to process an IIS log file?

Urchin can provide very basic reporting if your IIS log files have, at the very least, the following fields:

  • Date
  • Time
  • C-IP
  • CS-URI-Stem
  • SC-Status
  • SC-Bytes

These are required fields. Without them you will not get meaningful reporting. However, this minimal logging does not provide enough information for Referral and Browser reporting. Therefore it is advisable to set more detailed logging properties for your IIS server.
