IIS Admin trace data is written in binary format to a trace log (filename.etl). To view the trace data, the log file must be processed using the Trace Report tool that ships with Windows Server 2003.
To process and view an IIS Admin trace log
Open a command prompt and navigate to the directory where your IIS Admin trace log .etl file is stored.
Type tracerpt filename.etl and press ENTER. Trace Report processes the .etl file and creates two new files in the directory where you executed this command: summary.txt and dump.csv.
To view the file, type notepad dump.csv and press ENTER.
