Hi

My company uses domino for its websites and I have a tool for web stats that requires pearl.

So my question is can I ran Perl on the i-series domino web server and how

Or is there another tool that I can use within lotus to track web usage

Many Thanks

Hey,
PERL is definitely supported on the AS400 platform.

The PERL AS400 binaries and installation instructions can be found here

http://www.cpan.org/ports/#os400

I have tried the PASE port - works well.
The following article helped me through Perl installation

http://faq.midrange.com/data/cache/379.html

I can give you instruction on installation of Perl on an Apache web server, but as for integration of Perl with Domino web server - I really don't know.

However, there are excellent alternatives to AS400 based web log analysis tools.
For example, I use a perl based tool (Awstats) to analyze logs that originate in other servers.
Had to write a script to bring the log files to the server running Perl, but again - it works very well.

There is a bunch of web log analysis tools, like webtrends, that support remote server logs.

The thing is how to setup Domino to create a log in an appropriate format, and to rotate the logs in a reasonable fashion.

Cheers,
ShalomC

Thanks for your replies I will look into them. awstats was the reason I wanted to run perl.

Sorry I have not replied sooner but I have been off.

MrPan:

The 5799-PTL (iSeries Tools For Developers) licensed program product includes perl as well as other goodies, direct from IBM. We got it free, but I've heard IBM may charge approx $250 in general. Order it as a PRPQ and complain if you can't make it work with the Domino server.

Getting perl from IBM _might_ give you some support options, at least as far as asking basic questions goes, for a minor fee.

Hey,
I run Awstats on a windows machine to analyze logs that originate on a linux web server.
It's all in the awstats setup...
