    Web Reports

    I have been provided with the unenviable task of sourcing a web reporting application. Amongst the usual requirements of top level hit, daily/hourly activity, search engine referral and phrases etc I am desperately trying to find an application that supports server farms and network load balanced servers.

    I am aware of Web Trends which is all singing, all dancing but I would like to see some comparisons before making a decision/recommendation and do a cost comparison. Anybody out there use anything similar.....BTW it cannot be hosted, it must sit on our domain/ server area.

    I suspect it depends what stats are collected... Our web host runs AWStats for us and puts the results in the AWStats directory on each of our websites. Some nice pretty graphs and figures to show that a very significant quantity of the accesses are because of a) robots and [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] our own maintenance of the websites!

    There's another (free?) program that we used when located on a previous host, but I can't remember its name at home...

    I don't think Jezza cares what its name at home is, as long as he knows what to call it at work... <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    Excellent, I was looking at AWStats this morning, one of the developers here got a bit miffy with it as she reckons that there would be a lot of work behind it to get it set up and bespoked. (I have ignored her) and will be putting this on the list for testing...thanks John
