The Sawmill universal log file analysis tool includes support for Wowza™ media server log files (Wowza media server log analyzer plugin). To use the Sawmill universal log file analysis and reporting tool with your Wowza media server, follow these steps:
- Edit [install-dir]/conf/log4j.properties and add the serverStats logger to log configuration line (first line) of the file like this:
log4j.rootCategory=INFO, stdout, serverAccess, serverError, serverStats
- Download and install the Sawmill Log File Analysis and Reporting tool.
- Run Sawmill and import the Wowza media server logs using the following filter: [install-dir]/logs/wowzastreamingengine_stats.log* (for Wowza Streaming Engine) or [install-dir]/logs/wowzamediaserver_stats.log* (for Wowza Media Server). [install-dir] is the location of your Wowza media server software installation. Sawmill should recognize the Wowza media server log file format and report it as Wowza Media Server Log Format.
