What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing AccessOPache for Mac OS X

Mac software AccessOPache






TOKYO (MacHouse) – A happy new year! We haven’t published a single desktop application this year. Well, actually… We submitted the first software title of the year to Mac App Store several hours ago. This new software release is called AccessOPache.

AccessOPache is a desktop application that lets you analyze raw server log files generated by Apache effectively. Instead of directly analyzing a raw log file, AccessOPache will first convert an Apache server log file into a SQLite database file. In this manner, you can pull specific records out of the current dataset effectively. Run a specific search by setting a time interval between two pairs of date & time. Find out how many times each IP address has accessed the server.

Features

  1. Analyze raw server log files containing hundreds of thousands of records. Let the application convert each log file into a database file so that you can analyze data effectively.
  2. The built-in database lets you find out the nationality of an IP address you select.
  3. Use Request search to find out who has accessed the server for a particular resource.
  4. Use Time search to find out who has accessed the server during a particular interval.
  5. Use Collective IPs to find out how many times each IP address has accessed the server.
  6. Save lists of IP addresses, dates, requested resources, user agents as text files. Or send them to a printer.
  7. Split the current database into smaller XML files.
  8. Read data from an XML file generated by AccessOPache.
  9. The application supports Fullscreen.
  10. Language: English only.
  11. The application supports the Retina display.
  12. Application file size: 27.2 MB
  13. The application comes with a complete user’s guide written in English. (Choose Help > User’s Guide.)






System requirements

  1. Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8, 10.9
  2. 64-bit system






Limitations

  1. The application uses a build-in database to look up the nationality of each IP address. Since it’s not up-to-date, there is no guarantee that AccessOPache will find a match for the record you select.






Version history

1.0.3 (January 4, 2014)

  1. The application could crash when the user selected an XML file that was not created through Split Data. In other words, the user can now import any XML file that has been created with AccessOPache as a data source.
  2. The application did not initialize all data tables when the user selected a new dataset.
  3. Fix: The case-sensitive search did not work properly for Request search.

    Software version AccessOpache Version 1.0.3 (1.0.3) Paid version
    Mac OS version you are running Mavericks Server
    Mac model your are using Mac Mini

    Hi. I tried to open an access_log from /var/log/apache2, and the program says it can’t open that file. Which file can it open?

  2. Mr. Young,

    Hello. Thank you for your contacting us. I’ll get back with you in a minute.

  3. Mr. Young,

    When you drag and drop a raw log file onto the dropbox or choose Open Log File under File to select and open a log file, the application will see whether or not

    (1) the first line is space-separated and
    (2) the first element of the space-separated line is an IP address.

    If your file clears these two hardles, the application should be able to read the file.

    Meanwhile, going to application’s User’s Guide (Help > User’s Guide), Screenshot 1-11 shows a sample log file. So if AccessOPache is capable of reading the file you’ve selected, you should also be able to open it with Text Editor as well. Are you able to open it with TextEditor? If you wish, I’ll be happy to see what is wrong with your file. If you choose to send us a sample log file, please go to our Support website and click on here under No. 5, which will let you open a support ticket. Then you can send us a zip attachment. So please make sure you zip-package your log file.
