Hi John,

I am not sure to understand your message.

How to analyze a single log file is pretty basic. Please refer to this section of the AWStats documentation: Process logs: Building/updating statistics database.

To analyze a series of files, use . The documentation for this utility is available under Other utilities:

Give us more details if you need more help.

Hi Jean-Luc

Thanks for the information.

I want to analyze entire month logs (all at one time) not single file by file.

Example: Entire months MARCH logs

ex090301.log TO ex090331.log (all 31 log files)

what should be the configuration at conf =

LogFile=” ” (to analyze series of entire MARCH month logs)

LogFile=”E:\\Logs\\W3SVC1700423257\\ex090324.log” (single log file) = working fine

Please note:

One day's log file size is around 800 MB, if you recommend, imagine 800 MB X 30 days = 24 GB. I am wondering is it feasible?

Try :

LogFile="C:\\path\\to\\ E:\\Logs\\W3SVC1700423257\\ex0903*.log |"

This way, you will pipe the output of logresolvemerge to AWStats directly without the need of a huge intermediate file.

Thanks for the information and advise. I will try this and inform you the result.

LogFile="C:\\path\\to\\  E:\\Logs\\W3SVC1700423257\\ex0903*.log |"

C:\\path\\to\\  = I request you to clarify, whether this C:\\path\\to\\ differes from system to system. Do I have to fill up some information at C:\\xxxxx(path)\\xxxx(to)\\ e:\\logs……

I want to clarify few things here:

1.Perl is installed in c:\\perl

2.awstats is installed at d:/program files

3. website directory is at d:/webdocs/

4. log files are available at e:/logs

please help, regards

"C:\\path\\to\\"  was just an example and you need to replace it by the actual path to  in your system. Note that space characters are not allowed in this path.

I have no idea where this AWStats utility is installed in your system (it is often installed in a /tools  directory closed to the AWStats program directory). I am not even sure it is present in your system. If you do not have it, download the complete AWStats package from SourceForge and you find it under /tools .

Thanks for the update.

Yes you are perfectly right, I found this under /tools, which is available in my system path as below

LogFile="E:\\tools\\ E:\\Logs\\W3SVC1700423257\\ex0903*.log |"

Will run this and share the result, thanks

The command what I have executed to update awstat is = –update

d:/directoryname/subdirectoryname/cgi-bin> –update

The total log size is around 12 GB (23 days logs)

Let me watch, how much of time, does awstats take to analyze such huge logs.

I will update soon, once process is completed.



Sincere, Thanks to, one of the best KnowledgeBase web site for awstats know how.
