Which tool to Analysing Web traffic?


Hi!

I administrate a few websites on different servers. I'm looking for a Analysing Web traffic tool. I first found http://www.phpmyvisites.us. I installed it and then found out that you need to put some code on each page of your web site!
So I looked around and found other tools that seem more powerfull and work with log files, for example:
http://awstats.sourceforge.net/
http://www.mrunix.net/webalizer/
http://jan.kneschke.de/projects/modlogan/

I don't want to install them all in order to make myself an opinion. Does anyone have with these tools (or other) some good experience?
I'm looking for a tool which I only need to install once and that works on many websites located on different servers, and that works with logs analyse (meaning without having to put code on each page!).
Actually http://www.phpmyvisites.us is perfect for people who don't have access to the log files for example.

AwStats works great on my servers.
I didn't tried to analyse different servers with only one copy of awstats, but i think that it is possible.

Hello!

When I was student (three months ago ) We used a simple network analyzer, it called ethereal, but I think you don't search this kind of program . Well, if I use a web analysing, I use the webalizer. I search information about this program and I find very well opinions about this program.

I don't search any information about the other two programs

I encourage you to use webalizer.

Goodbye and good luck.

I used to rely a lot on Analog. Very powerfull, very fast, and quite configurable.

Now I use awstat: slower but more appealing to the eye (although Analog's look can be tweaked with CSS and you can even take the XML output and do whatever you want with it).

I've just installed awstat. works fine, but it doesn't recognise the country where the visitor is from so far (only 2 visitors). It says:
Quote:
Domains/Countries
unknown
it's surprising because he can read the IPs.
I'm also surprised that the statistics pages are not protected under a login.

i'm using geoIP (free awstats' plugin) and i'm happy with it. no "unknown" countries.

here is little howto:
http://www.ducea.com/2006/06/14/spee...f-dns-lookups/

about protecting stats page with login\password: awstats does not have own auth mechanism, but you can use Apache's instead (if you host you site on apache ofcourse )

I was under the impression that country information only resolves around 80% of the time, so it sounds to me like hit and miss a bit.

Great! It works! The howto is very well done. Thanks! Now I only need visitors!
