Analog reads logfiles produced by your web server, and produces an output file based on the data in them. So you need to know how to specify which logfile to read, and which file to send the output to. The relevant commands look like
LOGFILE my_logfile OUTFILE output.htmlwhere, of course, you should substitute the names of the files you want to use. The logfile must be on your local disk -- analog doesn't fetch it from across the network, so if it's not on your local disk, you will have to fetch it yourself first. You can read several logfiles by giving several logfile commands, or by giving a comma-separated list, or by using wild cards in the logfile name. So, for example, if you use the commands
LOGFILE new1.log,old*.log LOGFILE new2.loganalog will analyse the logfiles new1.log, new2.log, and all the old logfiles. Analog will recognise logfiles in several different formats. You can read more about this in the section Choosing a logfile.
HOSTNAME "Spam Widgets Inc." HOSTURL www.spam-widgets.com
If you have broken images in the output instead of graphs, you need to say in which directory on your server the images are stored. You do this by a command like
IMAGEDIR /analog/images/(The images are distributed with the program - you will have to move them to whichever directory you choose.)
MONTHLY ON # one line for each month WEEKLY ON # one line for each week FULLDAILY ON # one line for each day DAILY ON # one line for each day of the week HOURLY ON # one line for each hour of the day GENERAL ON # the General Summary at the top REQUEST ON # which files were requested FAILURE ON # which files were not found DIRECTORY ON # directory report HOST ON # which computers requested files DOMAIN ON # which countries they were in REFERRER ON # where people followed links from FAILREF ON # where people followed broken links from BROWSER ON # which browsers people were using FILETYPE ON # types of file requested SIZE ON # sizes of files requestedThe referrer and browser reports will only appear if your server records the necessary information. You can configure lots of other things about each report, such as how many rows are listed, which columns are included, and how the reports are sorted. For example, the command
REQINCLUDE pagestells analog only to list pages, rather than all files, in the request report. You can read about all the options in the sections on Time reports, Other reports and Hierarchical reports.
LANGUAGE FRENCHwill give you the output in French. The available languages at the moment are CHINESE, CZECH, DANISH, DUTCH, ENGLISH, US-ENGLISH, FINNISH, FRENCH, GERMAN, GREEK, HUNGARIAN, ITALIAN, NORWEGIAN (Bokmål), NYNORSK, POLISH, PORTUGUESE, BR-PORTUGUESE, ROMANIAN, RUSSIAN, SLOVAK, SLOVENE, SPANISH, SWEDISH and TURKISH. See the section on Configuring the output for how to download, or even translate, new languages.
As I said, these are only a few of the commands available. To find out about all the commands, you'll have to read the remaining sections of the Readme, starting with a short section on the syntax of configuration commands.
