Need a spider tracking script
...In Cold Fusion or VBScript

 1:25 pm on May 15, 2001 (gmt 0)

Hi all. So our Webtrends does not have the capability to report IP address activity from the spiders. I need to get some software/script written in Cold Fusion or VBScript (according to my web guys, we do not use Perl) to track Spider activity on a weekly / monthly basis. Are there any experiences with success on this out there?

I doubt anyone here really uses either VBS or CFM for what you're trying to do. Perl is the defacto standard web programming language amongst this crowd....and not without good reason. Perl will run on just about every platform I know of ....even NT and 2000. It is relatively easy to understand and highly portable so it's also very common.

Just like most of the Perl guys have an aversion to NT your web guys probably think Perl is antiquated. I would bet you could accomplish what you want to do with a script for free from Hotscripts.....just press for them to visit activeperl.com to get what you need to run it.

You can do this a few ways with CF. Check this link.
