Future Developments

Planned for version 2.0.

  • Agent Stats
    • Browser/Num Accesses
    • Default to ignore image accesses
  • Referer Stats
    • URL/list of referers/num accesses
    • URL pattern/list of referers/num accesses
    • Default to ignore image accesses
  • Gross Stats
    • Tallies for HTTP response codes
    • New graphs: Accesses per day, Frequency of Items Requested. Domains excluding local accesses.
    • Hyperlinks from Frequency of Items list.
    • Hit and miss rates for hosts accessing (proxy stats only)
    • IP number -> IP name translation (with user definitions)
    • Addition of news, secnews, https to protocols proxied (proxy stats only)
  • Cumulative Stats
    • Basically the same as the gross stats section, but calculated over lifetime of stats, or a defined period.
  • Traffic stats
    • Essentially gross stats, but with the accent on byte volume
  • User Stats
    • Summaries based on the user field where it is used.
  • Logfile support
    • Apache with referer and agent logging
    • Netscape
    • Netscape proxy
    • Extended Common Log Format
    • WU-ftpd logs
  • Incremental processing
    • Add data from logfiles to pwebstats at any time (hourly, daily, whatever) and pwebstats will re-generate the output with the new data included.
    • You’ll also be able to produce daily, weekly, monthly stats from the one set of data.
  • Forms-based configuration
    • Reading (and writing if you dare 🙂 config file from filesystem,
    • and configuring with pop-up lists, radio buttons, all the fancy stuff.
  • Configuration options
    • Settings for:
      • How many weeks to show on server usage graph & page
      • How many items in ‘Top N’ lists
      • Turn off/on just about every item
    • User-configurable ‘domains’ – for domain graph(s)/list(s)
  • Stats removal
    • The ability to remove the stats for a specific period from pwebstats, and then re-enter the data.
  • Text/Postscript Reports
    • Simple summaries that can be printed/emailed.

I’ll be changing to HTML tables for most of the

stuff that  should be in tables. If you have a problem with this, please let me know.If you have another log format you'd like pwebstats to read, could you send me the name of the format/program that produces it, a few lines from a log, and any reference to the log format.
