IIS 7.0 Log Analyzer

I need to analyze website actiivty. The sites run in their own application pool. The tools I see require me to navigate to the inetpub log file folder and choose a folder, but the names of the folders are too cryptic to know which folder belongs to which website. Is there a tool out there that can help me?

you should map each web site to its own logging folder.
Each web site has its own properties tab where the logging is defined.

If each web site has a different host name, then you can also flag the cs-host value to be included in the log. It is done in the advanced logging screen.

btw, IIS logging sucks.
If logging is really important to you, consider placing an apache in front as a reverse proxy and log all access off the apache server. It has way more functionality, options and ease of maintenance.

your solution is to add another server? economics aren't going to allow that.
