Picviz 'Needle 24/7' 0.4 is *out*.
NEWS ==== I will give a lecture on Picviz for the upcoming Usenix Workshop on the Analysis of System Logs (WASL 08) in San Diego. This is a good opportunity to meet and learn what you can do with Picviz. More information available on the conference website: http://www.usenix.org/event/wasl08/tech/ What is Picviz ? ================ Picviz is a parallel coordinates plotter, written to help people finding a needle in a haystack when dealing with numerous events on their system and struggling to maintain an acceptable level of security. It is a computer security visualization program, written in C with high performances in mind. Python bindings are available, and are used by the Picviz Frontend that you can use to dig into your graph. Parallel coordinates, the core visualization technique used by Picviz allows to represent graphs in N dimensions to see correlations among variables, making it a useful data mining software. Download! ========= Everything, including download, installation instructions and documentation, are available on the project webpage: http://www.wallinfire.net/picviz It is now highly recommended to compile Picviz with the cairo output plugin, since it is now the officialy recommended output.

The more the line comes is drawn, the more red it becomes. This is a gradient from green to red via yellow. Two modes are supported: - Axis pair: look for the highest frequency between two axes - Virus: look for the highest pair of axes frequency and every line touching it is drawn in the highest frequency color This greatly help the log analysis, to sort things that are normal (usually red) from things that occur just a few times. Usage: pcv -Tpngcairo -Rheatline file.pcv > file.png * Relative as axis property: instead of having it global with the engine section. * Learning mode: To decide automatically what is the most appropriate string placing algorithm. * Cairo plugin: Replaces the old plplot plugin (making it deprecated). This is now the default and recommended plugin. * Resolution can be changed on the fly: pcv -r..(rr) that more you add 'r', the bigger the image will be. * Height as image property * Multiple conditions for filtering: breaking the old way of doing it. To see only lines above 50% of the first axis AND 20% under the fifth you can type: pcv -Tpngcairo file.pcv 'show plot > 50% on axis 1 and plot < 20% on axis 5' -- Contributed by Yoann Vandoorselaere <yoann at prelude dash ids dot org> * Parser scripts rewritten * DansGuardian log 2 Picviz -- Contributed by Julien Miotte * SquidGuard log 2 Picviz -- Contributed by Olivier Delhomme _______________________________________________ Picviz mailing list Picviz@wallinfire.net http://www.wallinfire.net/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/picviz
