OS X stores Parental Control logs in
/Library/Application Support/Apple/ParentalControls/Users/[username]/year/month with the extension
15-usage.data contains usage data for the 15 day of a month.
The log files are system read/write only. To access them one must change permissions or use terminal.
I would like to be able browse these files. In an Apple discussion I found a reference to using a "SQL" add on for Firefox to browse them. I guessed this meant SQLite Manager for Firefox, but I the SQLite browsers I've tried can't open the file.
The file is binary, but in a text editor it shows typical Apple
I suspect a form of SQLite, or Core Data (which I think can use SQLite).
Does anyone have information on how to browse these files?
PS. It's hard to search on this, because both Bing and Google treat ".data" as "data", even when I use quotes. Also, as to why I want to do this ... I am working with a special needs adolescent with cognitive impairments, teaching him to develop self-monitoring skills. We review the logs together using OS X Parental Controls log viewer. Unfortunately Apple's viewer tool is broken (can't resize so can't view URLs) and has been broken through several OS revisions. Note this log cannot be viewed using Console.
