We have just added support for the ‘Group’ field in IronPort’s access logs. You can add this field to your logs by adding %g in the ‘Custom Fields’ edit box (on your IronPort WSA appliance under System Administration | Log Subscriptions | accesslogs).
When imported into WebSpy Vantage, the result is shown in a new summary called ‘Group’ which you can add to your reports.
We also added support for the custom fields Bytes Sent and Bytes Received. Due to the absence of a header in the IronPort access log, Bytes Received and Bytes Sent fields must both be present to be detected, and the Received field must precede the Sent field.
We also added support for the custom fields Request Body Size and Response Body Size. These fields can be included in your access log by adding %q (Request body size) and %b (Response body size) in the ‘Custom Fields’ edit box. Due to the absence of a header in the IronPort access log, Request Body Size and Response Body Size fields must both be present to be detected, and the Request field must precede the Response field.
We’ve also noticed that the values in the Bytes Sent and Bytes Received fields do not necessarily add up to the value logged for ‘Size’. We’re discussing this issue with our friends at IronPort and we will hopefully post a solution or explanation soon..
The information we first received about these fields indicated they represented Bytes Sent and Bytes Received. This is the way they are represented in the builds below (184.108.40.206). We will release a new build soon, with the field names changed to Request body size and Response body size. Body size is different to bytes sent/received as it does not include bytes from packet headers etc.
We’re yet to issue an automatic update for the Vantage applications, so in the mean time you can download the latest builds here:
Vantage Web Module:
To apply the Vantage update, close Vantage and extract the downloaded file into Vantage’s installation folder (Usually c:Program FilesWebSpyVantage <flavour> 2.2). Overwrite the existing files.
To apply the Web Module update, uninstall the Vantage Web Module from Add/Remove Programs (Programs and Features in Windows 7/Server 2008), then run the downloaded exe file, making sure you specify the same server, virtual directory and data location that your Web Module was previously using.
We will be releasing this as a public auto-update soon. Let us know if you have any issues.
