2163Re: webtrends to webalizer
- Jun 19, 2003Hey there.
I currently have this exact setup with dozens of winnt web servers.
All you need to do to get it working is compile webalizer with the
patch to read w3c logfiles, or you could run each log through rconvlog
but that could take forever.
Basically this is my setup after compiling with the patches:
using Samba I smbmounted all of the webserver's logs directories.
Each site has an entry in a mySQL database with $site $server and
$servicenumber (where servicenumber is the number after W3SVC in the
logs directory) I then wrote tons of customized perl scripts that
pull the info for each site and runs webalizer, basially pumping all
of the sites into an array. Each server also has it's own
Of course with our NT servers the logs are rotated daily which is
what caused most of the cusomization since the filename changes daily
and since IIS doesn't put the virtual domain in association with the
In conclusion, it's 100% possible, it's a pain in the butt, but well
worth it in the end. If you have any other questions, need help, or
whatever feel free to contact me directly.
I even got this to work on load balanced NT servers which was a REAL
pain since you have to use rconvlog to convert them and then use
mergelog to put them together and then run webalizer on them.
