    Advanced Web Statistics is a powerful and featureful tool that generates

    from command line or as a CGI and shows you all information your log contains,
    in graphical web pages. It can analyze a lot of web/wap/proxy servers like
    Apache, IIS, Weblogic, Webstar, Squid, ... but also mail or ftp servers.
    
    This program can measure visits, unique vistors, authenticated users, pages,
    domains/countries, OS busiest times, robot visits, type of files, search
    engines/keywords used, visits duration, HTTP errors and more...
    Statistics can be updated from a browser or your scheduler.
    The program also supports virtual servers, plugins and a lot of features.
    
    With the default configuration, the statistics are available:
