awstats update very slow

I've been using awstats for several years on a machine, and I recently reinstalled a new system on this machine.
awstats update is very slow, (far worse than a nice 20 slow)

here are some lines from a ./ -update -showsteps :

Phase 1 : First bypass old records, searching new record…
Direct access after last parsed record (after line 737547)
8192 lines processed (87000 ms, 94 lines/second)
16384 lines processed (158000 ms, 103 lines/second)
that sounds like a lot of time only to count carriage returns =)
anyone has a clue ?

What do you mean by "a lot of time only to count carriage returns " ? I guess AWStats does a lot more than that after line 737547.

There can be many reasons why your AWStats setup is slow. Hard to say from here.

If you use


consider using


This could significantly impact speed.

thank you for your answer,

and "oh my god" you were right.

I didn't even bothered doing that for a very simple reason :

I tought "phase 1" was supposed to "bypass old records" so I didn't bother trying. it was ok before, it must obviously be a dns configuration problem totally non related to awstats, as it worked like a charm before reinstalling the whole server.

and my problem is that my old resolv.conf is exactly like the new one, but this problem is beyond the scope of this forum.
