What? ACS 5 doesn't support CSV logging!!
Correct, until now
customers wanting to deep dive the diagnostic and protocol logs
generated by their ACS v5 appliances had no choice other than to
troll through large, complex and proprietary formatted text log
files where all kinds of events exist in the same single file -
the local log store. Alternatively, customers could access
session/protocol-only data via the ACS reporting server,
provided they are happy to tie up one or more ACS appliances to
run as "remote log receivers".
Extraxi's new ACS5 toolset supports both the automated bulk
collection of logs from the ACS appliance and a powerful .net
based parser to pull out just the data you want back into the
configurable formatted CSV files.
The default configuration supports the creation of CSV files
matching the ACS v3.x/4.x format which can be imported straight
into extraxi aaa-reports! alongside existing data. Alternatively
the parser configuration file can be edited to generate CSVs
using the full rich content of the ACS 5.x log data ready for
import into 3rd party solutions, or even purely for archiving.
Aggregation of data from multiple ACS servers, even if
geographically remote or distributed over a WAN now becomes
simple. Much like csvsync for ACS v3/v4, the ACS5 log collector
features a built-in SSH and FTP client that connect to the ACS,
generate a backup and download direct to your PC.

||Extraxi ACS5 log support is the perfect companion for aaa-reports! allowing for
fast, secure and automated download of your ACS log data.
However, it can can still be used stand-alone for the purposes
of automated log retrieval and archiving.
