[Issue] R80.10 SmartConsole: Export Logs to CSV


In SmartConsole, I want to export logs to CSV for some period. (For example, 30 days)

I applied the filter(30 days) and export it to a CSV file.

However, the log of 30 days was not exported and only a part was exported.

Is there a way to disable resolution in SmartView for the export??

I wrote following python script that you run on management.  It will request a start and end date (can be just 1 day) and a name for an archive file.  It will go through and export all logs in the given range (without name/port resolution) into /var/log/tmp and then create a tarball under the same based on archive name provided.  Once launched you can do the following:

1.Run the program you want to run: <python script name>
2.Hit Ctrl+Z
3.Type: disown -h %(job number displayed in “Stopped” message of Ctrl+Z)
4.Type: bg 1(job number displayed in “Stopped” message of Ctrl+Z)
Note: you must logout - you can log back in and monitor the job using 'ps aux | grep fwm' which should show which log file is currently being processed, however, if you stay logged in the job will finish prematurely.
Takes roughly around 15 to 20 minutes per 2 gb log file

#compare beginging date from end date and print current
delta = timedelta(days=1)

# Process log files

while Startdate <= Enddate:
date = (Startdate.strftime("%Y-%m-%d"))
range = f'{date}*.log'
for file in os.listdir('%s/log/' % path):
if fnmatch.fnmatch(file, range):['fwm logexport -n -p -i %s -o /var/log/tmp/%s.txt' % (file, file)],shell=True)
Startdate += delta

#Create Tarball of exported logs

print("All log files processed")
print("zipping up logs")['tar -cvzf /var/log/tmp/%s-%s-".tgz" /var/log/tmp/*.txt' %(archive, timestr)],shell=True)
print("tarball completed")
