NAME

       grokevt-findlogs - Attempts to find log file fragments in raw binary files, such as memory
       dumps and disk images.

SYNOPSIS

       grokevt-findlogs -?

       grokevt-findlogs [-v] [-h] [-H] [-o offset] raw-file

DESCRIPTION

       grokevt-findlogs searches a raw binary file for event log records. It  produces  a  simple
       comma-separated  values  (CSV) output to stdout which includes metadata and offsets of any
       hits. Using the metadata and offset/contiguity information, it should be easy to determine
       if the hits are false positives or not.

ARGUMENTS

       raw-file
              The binary file to be searched.

OPTIONS

       -?     Prints a basic usage statement.

       -v     Verbose mode. Prints status messages to stderr, which can be helpful for debugging.
              (Currently does nothing.)

       -h     Prints a header row at the top of the CSV output containing labels for each column.
              (This is the default behavior.)

       -H     Disables the printing of a header row. This is useful when grokevt-findlogs is used
              in a script.

       -o offset
              Begin search at this byte offset within the binary file.

BUGS

       Probably a few. This script has not been extensively tested with some guest platforms.

       There are likely some speed improvements that could be made.
