Quick and dirty statistics?

Added by CoderMan about 8 years ago

I'm running lighttpd on an amd64 Gentoo Linux server. I was wondering if anyone knew of any easy to use, lightweight tool to parse the access log and get statistics. I don't want something like awstats with an actual web page and all the configuration to deal with... just a program that parses the access log and dumps useful summarized statistics to stdout or a text file.

Obviously, I could do it myself in Ruby or Perl, but I'm too busy to re-invent the wheel.

I would like to know the same thing. I am currently running lighttpd on a very slim Debain VPS and looking for pretty much the exact same thing, a way to access logs/dumps in a simple fasion. awstats, or similar would be waaaaay too much for the purpose of this server and i would rather have nothing than to waste that much resources. Very much like the OP if i could avoid writing it my self it would be great because i am a very busy person. any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

My vote goes for "visitors" as well- lightweight, fast and GPL license.
You should have some C skills though, if you need to mod/tweak it.
