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

PERL is definitely supported on the AS400 platform.

The PERL AS400 binaries and installation instructions can be found here


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


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.

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.

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.

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