Viewing Apache Users

Posted on 2005-04-19
Last Modified: 2010-03-04
I run Apache on my Windows 2003 machine as a way for users to download media from me, and it gets kind of crowded. I am wondering if there is an Application, addon, or even an addition in Apache that I havent discovered yet, that will allow me to view who is downloading (what IP), and what they are downloading from me at one particular time. I am aware that there are access logs installed, but I am looking for a more real-time/GUI sort of thing. Can anyone help me in finding something like this?

    you can use mod_status for checking current status of your server:
    The details given are:

        * The number of children serving requests
        * The number of idle children
        * The status of each child, the number of requests that child has performed and the total number of bytes served by the child (*)
        * A total number of accesses and byte count served (*)
        * The time the server was started/restarted and the time it has been running for
        * Averages giving the number of requests per second, the number of bytes served per second and the average number of bytes per request (*)
        * The current percentage CPU used by each child and in total by Apache (*)
        * The current hosts and requests being processed (*)

    Details marked "(*)" are only available with ExtendedStatus On.

    Example config:
    LoadModule status_module modules/ApacheModuleStatus.dll
    ExtendedStatus On
    <Location /server-status>
        SetHandler server-status
        Order deny,allow
       Deny from all
         Allow from
