Hey all. I'm just curious,

Webalizer is a great log statistics tool for a webserver, but I am wondering whether there is a Perl module (or combo of Perl modules) that does what Webalizer does, but with more detail?

A lot of organizations and individuals do a great deal of log parsing (in this case web server log parsing), and they have their reasons for that. However, Is there a platform-independent Perl solution to providing Web Server Statistics in a fashion that equals or perhaps does more than Webalizer? I'm not talking about a fully blown CMS, no. A log watcher that provides methods for statistical purposes either on a single site or multiple sites that lends scalability -- in terms of the number of sites/hosts and CGI integration ability per site/host.

I don't want to take anything away from the Webalizer developers, because they do a great job. Just wondering whether somebody, or some people have gone to the effort in Perl to achieve the same goals & more, and if so, what are the pro's and con's.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
