I have written a new logfile analysis program called analog. It currently
analyses logfiles from your WWW server in the common format and the NCSA
old-style format (or logfiles containing both).

Why a new program? Well, in short, we found that all of the previously
available programs either produced ugly output, or couldn't cope with large
logfiles. My program
i) is fast. I can process 415 000 requests in under 30 seconds (on an
HP9000/735; your mileage may vary);
ii) produces attractive output (I think!);
iii) works well on large logfiles.

This program is still in beta test. I need more people to test it and tell
me how it copes on their systems, and what other features are needed. I hope
that in doing so you will be able to get better WWW statistics too!

A more detailed description of the program, and source code, can be found
