  • Bandwidth meters 17.10.2010 Comments Off on Updated Log Parser for Hyper-V Bandwidth Meter

    Log Parser for Hyper-V Bandwidth Meter now creates 2 reports.

    The first one is a HTML report showing the daily bandwidth usage of Hyper-V virtual machines (incoming and outgoing traffic in separate table columns) as long as the total usage per machine for selected period.

    The second one is a simple short list of Hyper-V virtual machines (virtual servers) and their traffic usage for the period. This brief report is in CSV format and it is easy to import it to Excel or some database (e.g. your billing system).

    Moreover, you can customize the report templates to fit your needs!

    By the way, this Log Parser can process log files of Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 Bandwidth Meter too.

    System requirements:

    • Windows 2012 or 2008 R2 (64bit only) with Hyper-V

It is a great tool (IEMT). By the way, it has saved me many hours in server migration and restoring! I strongly recommend your programs to any person that has to deal with IIS.
Aecio Lemos (www.vlsweb.com.br)

It (IIS Sites Transfer) saved me probably 12 hours at least! Great product, best $60 I ever spent!!
Mike May (www.activefx.net)

Thanks for an app (IEMT) that saved me a lot of time and prevented a lot of errors.
Ben Kressman

Your tools are very insightful and address REAL issues for Windows-based web hosters. I have used IIS Pools to identify websites that were causing continual issues on shared boxes. Previously, my only recourse was to stop EACH site (200+) until I found the site causing problems.
Joe Rebis (www.ephost.com)

We've recently purchased a license for your IIS Sites Transfer and want to thank you for this incredible tool.
