web log analysis software

because the title of my last question was misconstrued

google analytics is all well and good but it doesn't actually measure downloads

little programs that analyze your server logs, however, CAN do this. i've tried webalyzer and awstats and didn't like either one.

can anyone recommend a good, detailed, not too complicated server log analysis tool for linux systems?

no i was hoping you'd all do my work for me. web 2.0 has failed me

what you want to see? summary of which files are downloaded and by whom?

something like awstats or webalyzer but just like, better. more configurable.

i don't like it very much but this does have a summary of downloads and such:

i'm pretty sure awstats is configurable but don't they all just read the apache logs?
it might be easier to make your own report-maker depending on what it is you want.

they do all just read the apache logs but that's fine with me. i'm trying to set something up on a coho debian box and since i don't really know anything about linux it's somewhat baffling trying to get awstats to give me what i want. it's sort of shocking how primitive these tools are given the huge importance placed on visitor stats.

this looks cool!


what is it you want, though? -- it might not be too hard to make from scratch.
