grokevt-findlogs - Attempts to find log file fragments in raw binary files, such as memory dumps and disk images.


grokevt-findlogs -? .PP grokevt-findlogs [-v] [-h] [-H] [-o offset] raw-file .SH DESCRIPTION grokevt-findlogs searches a raw binary file for event log records. It produces a simple comma-separated values (CSV) output to stdout which includes metadata and offsets of any hits. Using the metadata and offset/contiguity information, it should be easy to determine if the hits are false positives or not.


The binary file to be searched.


Prints a basic usage statement.
Verbose mode. Prints status messages to stderr, which can be helpful for debugging. (Currently does nothing.)
Prints a header row at the top of the CSV output containing labels for each column. (This is the default behavior.)
Disables the printing of a header row. This is useful when grokevt-findlogs is used in a script.
-o offset
Begin search at this byte offset within the binary file.


Probably a few. This script has not been extensively tested with some guest platforms.

There are likely some speed improvements that could be made.
