    Your request cant be answered in the zones you listed your question in. Rather choose zones about scripting and database, post the sample logs and database tables so programmers can advice.

Ask for changing your question's zones

I am trying to understand what you are looking for. Is it that you want a reverse dns i.e. convert from IP addresses to their host names.
Do you use MS windows active directory? If you are using the DNS of ADS then you can query the host names of the IP addresses in your log.
