Hi,

my IIS logfiles contain entries with HTTP methods like OPTIONS and PROPFIND.

These entries are analysed correctly. Is there a way to avoid this.

Why ca we not specify in the config file which HTTP method accepted or not.

In the awstats.pl file, line 10870 says "HTTP request.    Keep only GET, POST, HEAD, *OK* and ERR! for Webstar. Do not keep OPTIONS, TRACE". This not right!!

I am using AWStats 6.95 build 1.943

Thanks for your help

Hi,

Please paste here the LogFormat  definition from your AWStats config file and a few lines from your log file.

This looks like a documentation issue: the comment in line 10870 was not updated with the list of supported methods. I guess that AWStats will drop OPTIONS, PROPFIND and others if you remove them from the test series between lines 10846 and 10865.
