You may view your hits statistics for your website in the section. The
Web Stats provides information about:-
Your website's monthly visitors access summary.
Your website's daily visitors access summary.
Your website's hourly visitors access summary.
Your website's access by country.
The most accessed file on your website.
The most bandwidth consuming file on your website.
The webserver response code. (eg. error 404, file not found, etc.)
Yearly Summary :
The yearly (index) report shows statistics for a 12 month period, and links
to each month.
Monthly Summary :
The monthly report has detailed statistics for that month with additional
links to any URL's and referrers found. The various totals shown are explained as below.
Hits : Any request made to the server
which is logged, is considered a 'hit'. The requests can be for anything... html pages,
graphic images, audio files, CGI scripts, etc... Each valid line in the server log is counted
as a hit. This number represents the total number of requests that were made to the server
during the specified report period.
Files : Some requests made to the server,
require that the server then send something back to the requesting client, such as a html page
or graphic image. When this happens, it is considered a 'file' and the files total is
incremented. The relationship between 'hits' and 'files' can be thought of as 'incoming
requests' and 'outgoing responses'.
Pages : Pages are, well, pages! Generally,
any HTML document, or anything that generates an HTML document, would be considered a page.
This does not include the other stuff that goes into a document, such as graphic images, audio
clips, etc... This number represents the number of 'pages' requested only, and does not include
the other 'stuff' that is in the page.
Sites : Each request made to the server
comes from a unique 'site' (or person), which can be referenced by a name or ultimately, an IP
address. The 'sites' number shows how many unique IP addresses made requests to the server
during the reporting time period. This DOES NOT mean the number of unique individual users
(real people) that visited, which is impossible to determine using just logs and the HTTP
protocol (however, this number might be about as close as you will get).
Visits : Whenever a request is made to the
server from a given IP address (site), the amount of time since a previous request by the
address is calculated (if any). If the time difference is greater than a pre-configured 'visit
timeout' value (or has never made a request before), it is considered a 'new visit', and this
total is incremented (both for the site, and the IP address). The timeout value for our
servers is 30 minutes, so if a user visits your site at 1:00 in the afternoon, and then returns
at 3:00 , two visits would be registered.
KBytes : The KBytes (kilobytes) value
shows the amount of data, in KB, that was sent out by the server during the specified reporting
period. This value is generated directly from the log file, so it is up to the web server to
produce accurate numbers in the logs (some web servers do stupid things when it comes to
reporting the number of bytes). In general, this should be a fairly accurate representation of
the amount of outgoing traffic the server had, regardless of the web servers reporting
quirks. (A kilobyte is 1024 bytes)
Top Entry and Exit Pages : The Top Entry
and Exit tables give a rough estimate of what URL's are used to enter your site, and what the
last pages viewed are. Because of limitations in the HTTP protocol, log rotations, etc...
this number should be considered a good "rough guess" of the actual numbers, however
will give a good indication of the overall trend in where users come into, and exit, your site.
Country : The country Statistics is shown in
the form of a Pie Chart. This report displays in percentage the number of users from a
particular country. This information is derived from the hostname of the visitor's computer
when accessing your website.
