    New in Vantage 3.0

    The following major features have been introduced in WebSpy Vantage 3.0.

    Updated User Interface

    The most noticeable change is that WebSpy Vantage 3.0 and the Web Module have received an updated look and feel. General navigation remains the same, so the experience is very familiar if you're used to v2.2. We hope you like it!

    Fastvue Site Clean Integration

    A common requirement when reporting on web-based log files, such as those from a proxy server or web gateway, is to view a clean list of websites that represent what people actually browsed, rather than showing every background CDN site or advertising widget.

    WebSpy Vantage 3.0 integrates the Fastvue Site Clean engine that cleans a majority of web traffic.

    Built for .NET 4.6

    WebSpy Vantage is now compiled for the .NET 4.6 framework, which brings with it a range of performance benefits including more efficient memory management and faster import and reporting speeds.


    In addition to the performance improvements through the upgraded .NET framework, the reports engine is now up to 90% faster in certain reporting situations. The improvement is most notable when publishing reports to the Web Module 'for each manager' in your organization, or 'for each group' (departments, offices etc), where the number of groups are in the hundreds.

    New Report Templates

    A new range of report templates have been added for the following log file formats:

    There are also new templates for any 'web' based formats (any supported log file that contain URLs, Usernames and Timestamps).

    SCP / SFTP importing

    Log files can now be directly imported over SCP / SFTP. Specify the server, path, port and file mask, along with either a username and password, or a username, identity file and passphrase. Also supports Gzip over SFTP.

    Improved Organization Import from LDAP

    Several improvements have been made to the Import Organization from LDAP wizard to make mapping log data to Active Directory objects easier. More details here.

    URL Parsing Supports New Generic Top Level Domains (new gTLDs)

    With new Generic Top Level Domains (New gTLDs) continually being released (think, .ninja, .guru, .walmart, .google etc), parsing URLs into domains, sub-domains and TLDs required a new approach.
    WebSpy Vantage now uses the list of public suffixes published by publicsuffix.org to correctly parse URLs into domain components.
    WebSpy Vantage automatically receives updates to the public suffixes list behind the scenes.

    Other Notable Improvements and Fixes

    In addition to new features, the following notable improvements have been made.

    • • Resuming Import from gzip Files
      Vantage 3.0 now remembers its position when importing logs within gzip files and can resume from that position if the import is stopped, or if the log file is appended to.
    • • Improved Event Log Support
      The underlying technology and user interface for importing Windows Event Logs has been updated, streamlining the process of importing all, or selected event logs from one or many machines.
    • • PDF Report Fixes
      The PDF report engine has also received an update fixing many PDF generation errors in the process.

    Loader Changes

    New Loader Groups are continually being added to the software. It is recommended that you check for updates regularly (using Tools | Check for updates). Most notable changes include:

    Pssst... Need a Free Syslog Server?
