Making MCMS-IIS log files more “readable” for stats analysis

In a MCMS site, resources are referenced by their GUID. This can pose a little problem for products like WebTrends because the reports won’t have a real name of the file being displayed… making it a bit challenging in interpreting the reports. There is a workaround for this. You first would want to prep your IIS log files to change the resource requests from a GUID to the actual posting/file name (whatever you like) so WebTrends (or other stats analysis software will pick up on it). This was recently discussed in a NNTP post by Spence1 where he also made reference to a GotDotNet user sample of a utility that does the conversion for you.
