RE: [webalizer] Log data being lost
I have downloaded the version of WEBALIZER from
http://www.medasys-lille.com/webalizer/. When I run it against my W3C
log file I get:
Warning: truncating oversized username
Skipping Bad Record
The fields specified in the log are:
date time c-ip cs-username s-ip s-port cs-method cs-uri-stem
cs-uri-query sc-status sc-bytes cs-bytes cs(user-agent) cs(referer)
In looking at each record in the log, the cs-username field contains
only a dash (-). There is an IP address before the dash that should be
the c-ip and one after that should be the s-ip. Any ideas??

you don't need to use CONVLOG with modern versions of webalizer for NT,
it will read the W3C format.
I do however recall that CONVLOG drops that information you are looking
on my w2k/iis5 server i simply do
d:\logs\webalizer.exe -c d:\logs\W3SVC1.conf
the logs are stored in W3C, with the necessaries turned on in "extended
properties". I don't need to convert to NCSA.
If there is some reason you want to convert to ncsa from w3c, don't use
CONVLOG. There are some other utilities around, probably on the
webalizer nt site ???.
I know I wrote one back in the old days when webalizer/nt wouldn't deal
with the W3C files, you can find it at http://wcg2.com
