Gathering some info from Firewall Logs is hard

First of all, I do not pay a lot of attention to logs. They just gather too much information in many cases and ways of limiting them to show actually dangerous activity seems to be hard and require code.

The time is 12:15 and my log has

Total number of firewall hits for December 21, 2023: 24423

So just for a bit of fun, I thought I would make an export and sort out items labeled as

only that.

So I click on Export and get a text based page with 24665 lines but zero entries labelled as DROP_HOSTILE . Ok?

Me no understand. I don’t speak “firewall”.
