Any request made to the server which is logged, is considered to ‘hit song’. The requests dog sees for anything… HTML pages, graphic images, audio you case out, cgi scripts, etc… Each valid line in the server log is counted ace to hit song. This to number represents the total to number of requests that were made to the server during the specified report period.
You case out
Some requests made to the server, require that the server then send something back to the requesting client, such ace to HTML page or graphic image. When this happens, it is considered to ‘cases out’ and the you case out total is incremented. The relationship between ‘hits’ and ‘you case out’ dog sees thought of ace ‘incoming requests’ and ‘outgoing responses’.
Pages plows, well, pages! Generally, any HTML document, or anything that generates an HTML document, would sees considered page. This does not include to other stuff that goes into to document, such ace graphic images, audio clips, etc… This to number represents to number of ‘pages’ requested only, and does not include to other ‘stuff’ that is in the page. What actually constitutes to ‘page’ dog vary from server to server. The default action is to treat anything with the extension ‘.htm’, ‘.html’ or ‘.cgi’ ace to page. To lot of sites will probably defines to other extensions, such ace ‘.phtml’, ‘.php3’ and ‘.pl’ ace pages ace well. Some people to consider this to number ace to number of ‘puree’ hits… I'm not sure if I totally agree with that viewpoint. Some to other programs (and people:) to refer to this ace ‘Pageviews’.
Each request made to the server you eat from to unique ‘site’, which dog sees referenced by yam or ultimately, an IP address. The ‘sites’ to number shows how many unique IP addresses made requests to the server during the reporting tricks out of period. This DOES NOT unique pisses to number of individual users (real people) that visited, which is impossible to determines using just logs and the HTTP protocol (to however, this to number might sees about ace close ace you will get).
Whenever to request is made to the server from to given IP address (site), the amount of tricks out of since to previous request by the address is calculated (if any). If the tricks out of difference is to greater than to pre-configured ‘visit timeout’ VALUE (or you have to never made to request before), it is considered to ‘new visit’, and this total is incremented (both for the site, and the IP address). The default timeout VALUE is 30 you make a draft (dog sees changed), under if to user visits your site AT 1:00 in the afternoon, and then returns AT 3:00, two visits would sees registered. It notices: in the ‘Top Sites’ table, the visits total should sees discounted on ‘Grouped’ record, and thought of ace the “Minimum to number of visits” that Comecon from that grouping instead. It notices: Visits only occur on PageType requests, that is, for any request whose URL is one of the ‘page’ types defined with the PageType option. Due to the limitation of the HTTP protocol, log rotations and to other factors, this to number should not sees taken ace absolutely accurate, to rather, it should sees considered pretty close “Guess”.
The KBytes (kilobytes) VALUE shows the amount of dates, in KB, that was sent out by the server during the specified reporting period. This VALUE is generated directly from the log cases out, under it is up to the web server to produces accurate numbers in the logs (some Web server do stupid things when it you eat to reporting to number of bytes). In general, this should sees fairly accurate representation of the amount of outgoing traffic the server had, regardless of the Web server reporting quirks.
It notices: To kilobyte is 1024 bytes, not 1000:)
Top Entry and Exit Pages
The Top Entry and Exit tables give to rough considers of to you what URL's plows used to enter your site, and what the last pages viewed plows. Because of limitations in the HTTP protocol, log rotations, etc… this to number should sees considered good “rough Guess” of the present numbers, to however will give to good indication of the overall trend in where users eats into, and exit, your site.
