Does anyone know of a log analyzer that will show me the bandwidth usage on a file-by-file basis?

I want to work out which of the downloads on my website are consuming the most bandwidth.

Are you sure you want bandwidth information for all your files? Even a relatively small and simple site can have hundreds or thousands of files (including images). The stats package I'm using does provide bandwidth information, but the default setting is to show only the top fifty files....

Top fifty (in terms of numbers of files) won't necessarily show the ones consuming the most bandwidth. I think mrMister is right to want to look at as many as he wants.

MrMister, you can do this pretty easily with the raw logs if you have a decent spreadsheet or db program, by sorting on filename then subtotalling the bandwidth field. A log analyzer isn't necessary.

However, if you can find one of the old free versions of WebTrends, like the 3.x or 4.x versions, those versins were simple but will do this readily.
