Sawmill is a highly sophisticated and flexible analysis and reporting tool. It can read text log files from over 800 different sources and analyse their content. Once analyzed it can produce detailed and informative reports (graphs, pie charts, tables, alerts etc.) based on the data they contain. Sawmill can also provide deductive reporting by the addition of computed columns which can be sorted/ compared to look-up tables of external or independently provided data to produce realisable and actionable data. In this way Sawmill can extend its application and usefulness in the areas of true high value analytics and ‘business time’ applications.
Who uses Sawmill
Sawmill is used by every type of organisation with a need to understand and monitor what is happening within their organisation. Traffic to and through their web site, traffic via their firewall for security monitoring and bandwidth/capacity management, monitoring outbound (employee) web visits via a proxy server, keeping track of mail server loading and usage, or for monitoring video and audio delivery quality from a streaming media server. These are just a few of the thousands of different applications that Sawmill contributes to in every country of the world. Use of Sawmill can be personal, or it can be as a service (SaaS). We estimate the combined installed base of Sawmill, both legitimate and non-legitimate, to be well in excess of 200,000 copies worldwide. This makes Sawmill perhaps the most installed analytics product to date.
