Need log tracking software in PHP

 7:59 pm on Mar 16, 2001 (gmt 0)

I would like to know if anyone knows of log tracking software written in PHP. I'd like something similiar to Traxis software, but at this point, I won't be picky.

Any suggestions? Preferably, I'd like something that is not a PITA to deal with.

Oh Mr Bond...

Thank you.

Actually, a log analyser is listed quite high on my 'to write' list (there's nothing suitable for my current situation - well, nothing cheap anyway ;)

What kind of things would be on the 'wish list' for the perfect analyser?

What I miss in most php trackers is a daily referrerlist. Most just have a top referrer list.

Another nice feature would be if it tracks the pages that people have visited on your site.

User session tracking. I like the format of WebLog alot. User sessions help me spot problems in the design as well as hackers and punks.

Keyword lists. Keeping a list of all the referring keywords.

Cookie admin authentication.

I was toying with the idea of throwing everything into a database, so that you could report referrers (or whatever) over any period you wanted... also, that way any new referrers that haven't been seen before could be highlighted for further investigation.

Sugarkane - an analysis of country referrers, Spiders, keyword referrers, etc. Could do with it being in a graphic form. Otherwise.... not much :-) We would be definately be interested.

Did we ever track down the final word in php loggers? I'd like to have a look myself, but nothing looks like it should be "the one".

Brett, I know what you mean. I've looked all over the web for one, each has something the other doesn't, but nothing has it all. We are using Livestats on an NT workstation to measure our stats, but it was built and designed for ASP. You can guess there are one or two problems. But otherwise it works fine. The only problem we have is with our Firewall. Because Bordermanager operates on a single IP, Livestats believes that all our domains are on a single IP. We have to get that sorted.

I built a custom solution in under 3 weeks using SQL server, VB COM+ components and Active Server Pages. As well as logging traffic etc it manages our mailing lists too.

To dish up reports as quickly as possible we use crystal reports, this allows us to develop new analysis in next to no time, with charts, graphics, tables etc to our own spec. These can also be distributed over the internet with the Crystal Active X viewer.

I have found this 'customised' personal approach to be priceless
