ftpStats is a comprehensive xferlog analyser that uses a MySQL backend to store the information. If you can figure out how to get the information in an xferlog into MySQL, Perl is not necessary. The program is available in English, Dutch, Spanish, Turkish, and French. HTML is generated live for each request, pulled from MySQL on the fly. Therefore, ftpStats is not suitable for analysing large amounts of data. It can realistically store and display the details of about 100,000 transfers before the pages become too slow to use. On a quiet FTP server, you might get years of analysis. On a busy servers, you might exceed this in a day. In the latter case, please consider using ftpStats as last-day analysis and something like Webalizer for long-term analysis.
