Analyzing Zope Z2.log files

We have a daily Zope Z2.log file which grows to approx 130 MB each day. What product is best to analyse this log file so that useful readable info is produced. The number of hits on each part of the site needs to be known in the first instance.

Hi

Personally i'd use Analog (http://www.analog.cx/), for it's flexibility, but there are several other tools out there e.g. http://awstats.sourceforge.net/, http://www.mrunix.net/webalizer/ 

If you decide to investigate analog, this may be of use:

Thank you your response and I worked on it straight away. I managed to get quite a decent looking report. The .cfg file I used was the standard one at 4 KB and I see one of their examples was 18 KB which presumably produces a lot of info. I have downloaded Right Magic as well but have not had time to use it.

Looking at the report that was produced the last entries where all the hits are listed give the number as well. One problem though is that all the icons used on a webpage are included as well. So there maybe 8 or 15 hits on a particular page but it is just load icons onto the page. Do you know of anyway to display the pages that have been visited in a striking way so that a layman may understand it.

I will acept your solution and hope you have time to reply to this comment

Hi

Just exclude the elements you don't want to see included on a report e.g.

REQEXCLUDE *.jpg

FILEEXCLUDE *.gif

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I have not been able to follow up on the research I was going to do.
