http-analyze http-analyze is a Web Log Analyzer for web servers. It analyzes the transfer log file of your Virtual Server web server and creates a comprehensive summary report from the information found there. http-analyze has been optimized to process large log files as fast as possible.

NOTE: Previous versions of http-analyze were not Y2K compliant and have not functioned correctly since 12/31/1999. We have patched the following version http-analyze so that it is Y2K compliant, but we cannot guarantee the performance of this patch. The patch has been applied to previously installed versions of http-analyze on all Virtual Servers. You do not need to re-install http-analyze in order to apply this fix.

To install http-analyze 1.9e, connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and run the following command.

% vinstall http-analyze

Run the http-analyze program to create HTML pages with your Virtual Server's web statistics. http-analyze has already been compiled for your use. The following command will create a monthly report of access to your Virtual Server web server.

% virtual http-analyze -vm -S YOUR-DOMAIN.NAME \
  -o /www/htdocs/http-analyze /www/logs/access_log

NOTE: Your log files must be in Common Log Format in order for this version of http-analyze to run properly.

After running the command above you will find several pages with your Virtual Server's web statistics at the URL:


Using the virtual command above allows you to specify paths from the home directory of your Virtual Server, instead of from the root directory of the host machine of your virtual server. Here is an explanation of the command line arguments used above and several others you may find useful:

-h              print the help list
-d              generate short statistics (default)
-m              generate full statistics (includes -d)
-v              verbose mode: comment ongoing processing
-o outdir       name of the directory for HTML output files
-S srvname      set server name (default: system name)

The final command line argument used in the example above is the path and filename of the Virtual Server's web server access log file.

Documentation will be installed as manpages on your Virtual Server when you install http-analyze. This documenation can be accessed during a Telnet or SSH session after configuring your Virtual Server to view manpages in your Virtual Server directory structure. To do that, add the following line (an alias) to ~/.cshrc file on your Virtual Server:

alias man man -m '/usr/home/LOGIN/usr/local/man'

To make this change effective, use the source command:

% source ~/.cshrc

Once the above is configured you can view the http-analyze manpages by using the man command:

% man http-analyze

Documentation can also be found at the http-analyze web site.
