[any distribution] http session monitoring on Linux


Dear users,

I am currently carrying out research about network performance and I wonder if there are some good http session monitors that you could recommend to me.
I know I should go to google and look for them. However, I am writing here about a monitor that could give me users' behaviour per session. In simpler words, something that could tell me that on this day and at this hour someone entered the website click these links visited those subpages and left.

Is there anything as such? Or the only thing that left is analysing network traffic dumps?

Thank you for your answers and please accept my apology if this question is silly.

Cheers

Assuming that you're on a corporate network based on your question, and if that is the case, what you're looking for could/should be available on a proxy server (if you're using one that is).

Hi pgroover,

In general it is a University website. I will have to find out how it is organised, however, I have learned that the IP address is from a range we are using at the campus so it should be physically possible.

In case it is not, is there any monitor that does that? There is Tstat that reads from network dumps, but it is still passive analysis.

Not familiar with Tstat, but from what I've read it seems as if it will do what you're looking for.
