Lire::WELF - Base implementation of a WebTrends(tm) Enhanced Log Format parser
use Lire::WELF; my $parser = new Lire::WELF; my $welf_rec = $parser->parse( $line );
This module defines an object able to parse WebTrends(tm) Enhanced Log Format. That log format was defined by WebTrends(tm) for its Firewall Suite. It defines an extensible format that is now used by several packet filter and/or proxy firewall. The document describing that format is available from http://www.webtrends.com/partners/welfOverview.htm A list of products/vendor that supports this format can be found at http://www.webtrends.com/partners/firewall.htm You create a WELF parser object using the new() method: my $parser = new Lire::WELF(); To parse a WELF record you invoke the parser() method with the line containing the record as parameter: my $rec = $parser->parse( $line ); The $rec is an hash reference with the WELF field name used as keys and the value of the records as values. No value are interpreted or checked in any except for the following: time The time field will be converted to epoch time quotation The quotation marks used when the value contains spaces are removed. WELF EXTENSIONS The parser also supports "extensions" to the format found in the field. port We will interpret correctly src and dst fields that have the port embededded in them: src=192.168.1.1:1037 interface A possible :IFNAME will also be interpreted as the interface name: dst=192.168.100.10:23:WAN timezone The time field may contains a time zone identifier: time="2001-12-02 12:34:12 UTC" Derived Fields The parser will generate a few 'derived' to complete the format. src_port Will contain the src port portion of the dst field when SonicWall extensions are used. dst_port Will contain the interface portion of the dst field when SonicWall extensions are used. src_if Will contain the interface portion of the src field when SonicWall extensions are used. dst_if Will contain the interface portion of the dst field when SonicWall extensions are used.
