1. Web Measurement Basics > 11. Use Analog to Process Logfiles

Use Analog to Process Logfiles

Analog is purportedly the most popular web server logfile analyzer in the world. If you’re just getting your feet wet in web measurement, you might want to give it a quick try.

Analog, written by Dr. Stephen Turner (one of the original web measurement hackers), is an easy-to-install and highly flexible web server log analyze—one that hundreds of thousands of people have likely tried at one time or another just to get a taste of web measurement. Since it’s completely free, you might want to take the time to download and install the application and generate a few reports just for fun.

Analog: Where to Get It!

Analog is made freely available by Dr. Turner at www.analog.cx. At the time this book was written, versions of the application were available for Windows; Macintosh OS 8, OS 9, and OS X; dozens of flavors of Unix, including BSD, Linux, HP-UX, and Solaris; and a motley collection of non-Unix platforms like BeOS, Novell Netware, and OpenVMS. You can also download the source code to compile on any known platform, if it suits your fancy.
