       grokevt-addlog - A tool for adding a raw event log to an existing GrokEVT database.


       grokevt-addlog  database-dir  evt-file  new-type  base-type .SH DESCRIPTION grokevt-addlog
       takes a raw event log (.evt file) and  adds  it  to  a  pre-built  database  generated  by
       grokevt-builddb(1).  This  new  log  file  will  be set up to use the message templates of
       another log, as determined by the user.

       This tool is primarily useful for processing deleted logs and log  fragments  found  on  a
       system.  While  it is possible to use the database generated from one system with the logs
       of another, this is not recommended for investigations unless no alternatives exist.


       grokevt-addlog uses the following arguments:

              The base directory for the database generated previously by grokevt-builddb(1).

              The file to be added to the database.

              The new log type/name that evt-file will take on.  This is the name that will  need
              to be used later with grokevt-parselog(1) to access the new log. This type must not
              already exist in the database.

              The existing log type that this new log will be based  on.  The  message  templates
              from  this type will be used with the new log when parsing. This type must exist in
              the current database.


       Probably several. This particular script has not been extensively tested.
