The examples for the command "convlog"

The `CONVLOG` command is not normally invoked directly from the command prompt. Instead, it is a utility associated with Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) that is used to convert IIS log files (log files) to the NCSA Common Log File Format. Converting log files can be used to make them more accessible for other analyzes or tools. Here are some theoretical examples of how `CONVLOG` could be used: Example 1: Converting IIS log files:

CONVLOG -r -s:C:\Inetpub\Logs -d:C:\ConvertedLogs

This command could hypothetically be used to convert log files in the `C:\Inetpub\Logs` directory and save the converted files in the `C:\ConvertedLogs` directory. Example 2: Convert with specific date range filtering:

CONVLOG -r -s:C:\Inetpub\Logs -d:C:\ConvertedLogs -e:2023-01-01,2023-12-31

This example uses the `CONVLOG` command to convert only log data from 2023. Example 3: Show help and options:


This command displays possible options and parameters that can be used with `CONVLOG` and a description of their functions. Please note that the above examples are purely hypothetical and may not be directly applicable to real systems. The specific parameters and options may vary depending on the version of `CONVLOG` and the IIS configuration. For more detailed information and usage examples, I recommend consulting the official Microsoft documentation on `CONVLOG` or using the help option (`-h`) as shown in the third example.
