We have site which gets huge traffic from Twitter.com My problem in using awstats here is my sessions and unique sessions count remain very less as compare to pageviews.

As per awstats document a session each IP is taken as unique for a month and in Visitor Session its time duration is one hour by default. We have reduce this one hour to 5 minutes in Visitor Sessions but still the concern remains same though no of total sessions increased a bit.

Please let me know How I can set IP session time a Zero so that access from every IP is counted as new session

If the IP session time is zero as you require, then each page view will start a new session and the number of sessions will be equal to the number of page views. This is a very unusual way to count sessions…

Hi Jaen

Thanks for your response. My problem is I am not able to show the sessions I am receiving from twitter. Since my max traffic is coming from twitter and in present sanerio we have Session time Out set as 180 secs

Since traffic received from twitter is hudge but for 180 secs it is counting only one session which is giving very dispropotionate ratio between session vs pageviews.

Please let me know How I can resolve this problem so that every new entry from twitter is taken as new session

I believe that what you want is a count of the number of referrers from Twitter. You can get that with an extra section.

Try this:

ExtraSectionName1="Visits from Twitter"
ExtraSectionCodeFilter1="200 304"
ExtraSectionCondition1="REFERER,^http:\\/\\/twitter\\.com"
ExtraSectionFirstColumnTitle1="Landing Pages"
ExtraSectionFirstColumnValues1="URL,^(.*)$"
ExtraSectionFirstColumnFormat1="%s"
ExtraSectionStatTypes1=PHBL
ExtraSectionAddSumRow1=1
MaxNbOfExtra1=100
MinHitExtra1=1

You will get a list of URL's with the number of visits from Twitter for each URL.
