It has been a while since I used Webalizer, without you being more specific about 'but with more detail' its difficult to say. Perhaps awstats would be worth a look (see awstats compared to other stats tools).

    I see that AWStats uses maxmind's GeoIP 'Perl API'.
    I know you can obtain CIDR country nets from ftp.(apnic)|(arin)|(lacnic)|(afrinic)|(ripe).net, yet they all have different ftp dir tree's which makes creating modules for such a use hapless -- unless they 'honest to god' kept those ftp dir tree's constant (do they keep their dir tree's constant?).

    On a different subject. Country CIDR-net firewalling is something that a lot of countries/orgs/individuals practice these days. It's quite sad. But you have to do it when you have to do it.

    marto, have you used AWStats? Is it stable? And have you used Maxmind's GeoIP Perl Module (either one) on its own?

      I have used awstats in the past, and about to start using it again for some projects I am working on at the moment (logging normal web traffic as well as streaming media).

      In the past I have never had any problems with it, and I know that several large ISPs that I have worked for in the past use it. Also it is written in Perl, which was a requirement you mentioned in your post.

        Yes, awstats is written in perl, but it's probably some of the evillest perl code you'll ever see.
