hit statistics for IIS or Personal Web Server

I'm trying to keep track of how many hits each site gets per day.  I have a log file running and I guess I could write a routine which parses that file to calculate the number of hits.  However, both the personal web server and especially Internet Information Server are very powerful and I am hoping that they already contain a way to report hit statistics.  Do they?  How do I get it to work?

Thanx.

There are products on the market such as interse (MS bought them and have a product called useageanalyst, I think), which allow you to do detailed reporting, more than just how many hits I got.

IIS 3.0 used to come with a crystal reports piece that would do that for you.

Visit http://www.backoffice.microsoft.com/products/features/UsageAnalyst/SiteServerE.asp for detailed analysis
or for light analysis, there are several free counters that give you hit statistics, such as http://www.pagecount.com/
