a perl script that generates a statistical summary of the contents of an Apache access log.
httpdstats is a perl script that generates a statistical summary of the contents of an Apache access log and either prints the summary or sends it, via mail, to somebody. This program is intended for use on small, low-traffic web servers, where the full power of a larger more complex program represents overkill. The main intended use for httpdstats is as a cron job, so that the web administrator can receive a daily report on server usage just before the logs are rotated; an anacron script and configuration file are installed for that purpose. The results can either printed directly or mailed to an interested party as text or HTML. Configuration files can be used to set the various options available. Certain file suffixes, for file types such as JPEG, PNG or GIF images, can be collapsed into grouped entries, to avoid cluttering up the report with labels, logos and other meaningless data.
