STS Log File Information

  Asked By: Howard    Date: May 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 6024

Has anyone worked with the log files created for SharePoint Team
Services? I am trying to follow user activity on the server by
examining the log files. There is a column in the log file that is
labeled SC-STATUS and has numeric values such as 200, 304. I'm
assuming these are some type of return codes for events that occur
such as GET, POST. Does anyone know what these values mean? I'm
interested know what 304 indicates.

Also, is there some document or web link that has a description for
each of these codes?

I think that SC-STATUS in STS is the same as in normal websites - 304
therefore would stand for "Not modified". Status codes explained here:

I am curious if anyone has done any web part coding against the WSS logs, I
am being asked to have a report showing page access per user  or file  access
in a doc library per user, one option is to use Webtrends against the IIS
logs but I was wondering if another option would be to trolling the WSS logs
with a web part.. I have seen somewhere a Blog entry of using Reporting
Services - probably preferable!

FrontPage and SharePoint have some built-in "trends". They may not be
granular enough for what you are trying to do but you should have a look.

Check out the FrontPage "Top 10 List" Web Components from the Insert menu. I
can't remember right now where the SharePoint "trends" can be found, but
they are out there. I think they are per site or maybe even per list.

Just add /_layouts/LC/UsageDetails.aspx to the SPS
portal url.
E.g. http://spsportal/_layouts/LC/UsageDetails.aspx
LC stands for language code i.e. 1033

Hope this is an answer to your question!

No no..I want to extend the basic reports by getting into the code

We use a free web log  tool called AWStats (http://awstats.sourceforge.net/) to
summarize some of our WSS logs. It has a nice set of reports.

Interesting but not what I am being askd to produce. I have users who want
to see based upon a specific file  or file type who accessed it.

I've ben thinking the algorithim thru and scripted a bit of it in VBS the
next step is to make a web part out of it

Basically load up the logs parse into a drop down list the users then use
that as a filter based on the GET method by steming the file list...

Shouldn't be too difficult..just need some time
