Transformers

Babel

The Babel transformer is included in the Workbench installation package.  Babel translates three file types:

  • IIS W3C Log to PCAPNG
  • netsh trace (ETL) with Ethernet frames to PCAPNG
  • netsh trace (ETL) with WiFi 802.11 frames to PCAPNG

This means that IIS logs and netsh trace files can be seamlessly opened with Wireshark.  Babel should be configured with two profiles; one for IIS W3C logs and another for ETL files.
