View Full Version : Stats: Unique Hits
02-08-1999, 01:02 PM
Now, I like your Stats that you provide for the web hosting. However, after looking through and reading the anaylize faq page, I can't find if you provide an only unique hits stats. Meaning, I cannot provide to advertisors hits that include every image and download on my site.
Has anyone figured out a total unique hits (meaning only 1 hit per day even if that person visits 15 times per day) without all the added hits and reloads?
Or total impressions?
I don't know if you're going to find a guaranteed way of providing true UNIQUE hits -- not counting the same person more then once... but the "Pageviews" on your stats is what counts only the page load rather then everything else like images etc...
The closest thing to what you are looking for within our stats is the number under "Pageviews".

Okay, but are the pageviews broken down for the day by each page? I would like to view each page individually with each pages pageview statistics. This I cannot find...
Click on the "More Info" link at the top of any particular chart.... I usually go to "Top Urls" from the frames version and then click on the "More Info" link from there.
You could probably also do a search in places like cgi-resources for other site specific stat packages and find something to give you a breakdown of only what you want reading from your raw log files....
Hope this helps

I took a look at cgi-resources and I'm very intrigued by a log analysis program called "Follow" that displays the most frequent paths that users took through your site include the average time they lingered on each page, how they arrived and how they left. The program is described at http://mnot.cbd.net.au/follow2/
It requires access to raw log files in something called "Combined Format". Any guesess whether I could set this up? I see logs, logs-web and logs-cgi directories.

The Combined Format is a Web logfile that has information about the
user agent and referer for each hit appended to each line. Most modern
Web servers should be able to produce this with little trouble; consult
your documentation for more details.
So, it seems to me like your logs are already
in this format on FQ . . .

For performance and optimization reasons, our logs utilize the ELF format...
You can read about the different log formats at: http://www.netstore.de/Supply/http-analyze/manual/man02.html#LogfileFmt
ELF shaves about 20% overhead off of our stats processing times... In a months time, our servers process an aggregate of over a terrabyte in logfile contents...
With a few tweaks to the script you use, you can easily adjust it for the ELF format and reduce your own parsing overhead... I can only hope that one day the the stats processors adopt this logging method as a de facto standard... http://www.aota.net/ubb/smile.gif
Hope this sheds some light on the matter...
