For visualization tools to work with our data, we have to convert it to specific formats that the tools understand. Most of them do not contain built-in parsers that can be used to directly read the log files. Chapter 9, “Data Visualization Tools,” discusses a few common formats used by visualization tools. To use your own data with those tools, you must transform your log files into these formats. The reason that many tools require different types of inputs is that each tool requires a slightly different set of information to operate.
Unfortunately, nothing is published on this topic at this point. The only thing you can do to solve the problem of missing information in your log files is to contact the vendor of that piece of software or device to request an enhancement for the next version. Do not hesitate to do so. The vendors are generally open to suggestions in this area. Help the greater community by making these requests! Finally, the way timestamps are recorded in log files is very important. When collecting data from systems in different time zones, the log records have to indicate the time zone.
Various tools can be used to collect network traffic. 8 These tools listen on the network interface and display the traffic. Both tools take the raw network traffic and analyze the entire packet to decode the individual network protocols. They then display the individual header options and fields in a more or less human-readable form rather than the original binary format. Wireshark provides a graphical user interface to explore the network packets. It also ships with a command-line tool called tshark.
