The logs generated by the operating systems, and application programs, network devices, web browsers and all devices in the information systems during their normal course of operation are very important and allow system administrators to ensure that they have a reliable information system, and track what is going on in the IS, such as what web sites clients visited, whom they are sending e-mails to and receiving e-mails from and what applications are accessed. The main goal of this study is to develop software which can parse both logs generated by the information systems (IS) in real time and logs written to historical text files, and store logs in a central database in order to perform various analyses for reporting and detecting anomaly tasks on the system. Daily log entries belonging to the information systems department of Firat University Hospital are applied with the program and various analysis results were obtained. In general, information systems logs can be easily analyzed and converted into information.
