Tips and Tricks¶
This is a collection of few tips and tricks that can be used with plaso
analyzeMFT and plaso¶
Plaso can parse the output of analyzeMFT in bodyfile (or mactime) output.
Run analyzeMFT as following:
$ analyzeMFT.py -b output.bodyfile -f input.MFT $ log2timeline.py test.plaso output.bodyfile
The mactime parser of plaso will parse the bodyfile.

Split the output of psort¶
psort itself does not provide you the option of splitting the file into chunks, however there are other ways to achieve that, such as using the standard Unix tool
$ psort.py test.plaso | split -b 10m - split_output_
This will leave you with the following files:
And so on… the size can be controlled by the ``-b``` parameter of the split command.
