Analyzing Microsoft IIS Web Logs - Part 2
Now almost all the streams we analyze are encrypted, how can we see what's inside those pesky SSL/TLS packets. Here's one way.
In the previous video in this series we saw how web logs provide an abundance of information; just the sort of stuff we need to take a performance problem to a developer. And now we can analyze web logs with Wireshark.
In this video we discover how to match encrypted packets with IIS web log data, and how we can use Wireshark to filter and analyse the web log entries.
In the video we cover the "long polling" technique for asynchronous communication. Long polling allows a client to receive asynchronous notification of an event occurring on a server, such as a message arriving in an inbox. Many applications use long polling, see:
