VB Script that will manage IIS http log files?

I'm a greenhorn trying to work my way up to newbie status with examples of scripts on EE,
Ed Wilson's Windows Scripting Learning Guide, and Google.  

I want to copy the log files that are older than the current days date from the IIS server to a server we archive them on, and then delete the log file from the IIS server, both servers are in the same domain.  Or simply moving the files from one server to the other would work also.

We have thirty or so sites on the server, each site has a separate folder that contains that particular sites log files.  The structure looks like \\servername\web\logfiles\www.site.org\exyymmdd.log.

I'm asking for a script that would loop though the folder and either copies and deletes, or moves the log files.  I would use Task Manager to run the script once a week.

Thanks


Thanks

Hi,

This vbscript is checking a folder and all sub folder for files named "*.log".
Then it will diff the date/time on DateLastModified attribute on the log file to get a date
to run a diff on. If that attribute is older then one day it will copy the file to a new folder.
The file will get the subfolder name below the main folder \\servername\web\logfiles and
then it's actual file name. "site1_20090414.log"

Alteast this script will get you started. There is no error handling in this script.

Regards Tompa
Dim objFSO

Dim FolderPath

Dim siteFolders

Dim CopyToFolder

FolderPath = "c:\logfiles" '\\servername\web\logfiles

CopyToFolder = "c:\temp\" 'Folder to copy to
 

Set objFSO = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder (FolderPath)
 

for each subF in objFolder.SubFolders

	Set objSiteFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(FolderPath + "\" + subF.name) ' Getting the sub folders for each site

	for each file in objSiteFolder.Files

		fileTypeCheck = instr(ucase(file.Name), ".LOG")  'One verify that it is a log file  

		if filetypeCheck <> 0 then

			check = DiffADate(file.DateLastModified) ' Running Function DiffADate to find out Diffrence in date.

			if check <> 0 then ' if <> 0 then the file is older then one day and will be copied

				cmd = file.Copy(CopyToFolder + subF.name + "_" + file.Name,false) ' File will get the name subfoldername_20090414.log 

				runDelete = file.Delete ' Will delete the file after copy. No error handling in this script if copy goes wrong

			end if

		end if 

	next

next 
 

Function DiffADate(theDate)

   	DiffADate = DateDiff("d", Now, theDate) ' Now is the date and time when script is running

End Function
