Apache Web Log Analyzer - gHacks Tech News

Apache Web Log Analyzer

Webmasters have a few log file analysis options. Many web hosting companies provide pre-installed scripts like Webalizer that automatically perform an Apache log file analysis and display the results in a web browser. There are also several external online services that can be added to the websites directly to display an analysis that is comparable to those Apache log analyzers.

Another option for some webmasters are software programs that can load and process Apache log files. One of these programs is Apache Log Viewer, a free Apache log file analyzer for the Windows operating system. The webmaster needs to load the Apache log file (either access or error log) in uncompressed format into the Apache log analyzer. The program will then automatically process the log file and display it in a more readable format.
