Web Log Analysis Software

Web log analysis software (also called a web log analyzer) is a kind of web analytics software that parses a server log file from a web server, and based on the values contained in the log file, derives indicators about when, how, and by whom a web server is visited. Reports are usually generated immediately, but data extracted from the log files can alternatively be stored in a database, allowing various reports to be generated on demand.

Features supported by log analysis packages may include "hit filters", which use pattern matching to examine selected log data.[]

  • Number of visits and number of unique visitors
  • Visit duration and last visits

  • HTTP referrer
  • Search engines, key phrases and keywords used to find the analyzed web site
  • HTTP errors
  • Some of the log analyzers also report on who is on the site, conversion tracking, visit time and page navigation.
