- Oct 10, 2001hello,
I am delighted by learn that you have working on webalizer win 32 version, i
can if you want add your Multi-threaded code to current port.
You can also download source of this port :
I send all my code to Brad somes months ago.
I think that the win32 release is not its priority.

Objet : [webalizer] Re: Question for Win32 Webalizer users?
That is interesting as I was wondering whether or not it was worth
compressing either the DNS files or the 'webalizer.current' file.
Actually I have good news and bad news for you! I ported the UNIX
version to Windows just a test to see how close I could keep them. It
basically ported very well and easily, I then worked on the DNS part
which didnt compile in by default.
And I have a multithreaded DNS lookup mechanism that uses a
configurable thread pool (dnschildren) to perform the lookups (max 64
concurrent threads). In fact this turned out to be reasonably simple.
However at that time I didnt have access to the Win32 port, so while
I did things in a similar way as the current Win32 version it is not
a drop in replacement.
So in essence the threaded DNS code exists, and I am going to release
a modified version of Webalizer with a couple of new features:
* Multi-threaded DNS pool
* IIS W3C parsing no longer requires the date to be used
* 404 error report
* Denied URL report
* Squid proxy status (HITS vs MISSES vs DENIED etc)
-- The following are work in progress
* Ensure all changes are portable to Linux
* Additional data collection for 304's
* and a couple of other Squid related reports.
* Combine the languages into a single executable
* Potentially compressing 'webalizer.current' to save space on the
However the release wont be for a month or two.
I have a particular interest in parsing Squid logs at the moment. If
someone wants to reintegrate in the multithreaded DNS code into the
offical Win32 version I can email them a copy. It shouldnt be too
Also do you have any information on the webtrends addin? I havnt seen
this one before. Do you have a URL for it?
