I know this has probably been asked a million times before, but I couldn’t find a good answer to our specific problem. We’ve enabled message packet auditing on our openfire server and the jive audit logs are getting correctly written to and everything appears to be working properly. However, I’ve downloaded the xml log files it’s producing and viewed them in my browser and I don’t see any kind of useful information. All I see is hash garbage from the avatars of the users and a bunch of spam. I don’t see any actual message conversations between users.
Is there a way to change the auditing to only log actual conversations? I only want to see the conversation, the timestamp, and the to/from users. Can I use the standard audit logging for this, or is there a better way? Also, anything that writes to a database is a huge advantage over log files for us.
