Hopefully, you guys can help me out here. What do you know about Domino log files and reporting on NSF page activity?
This server doesn't have the domlog.nsf file enabled. Instead, it creates a text log file of all the activity for each day. They are typically quite large files - sometimes as big as 15MB for one day! Domino compresses these files and I download them via FTP for storage locally.
I've been doing this for ages now, but I've not bothered looking at them for probably over a year now. That is until a client started asking me about log analysis. What I need to be able to do is report on the title of the documents being accessed the most. What I'm not sure of is whether this is possible from the standard Domino Extended Common log files. The standard log records the URL of the page and not the title. What's the easiest way to log page hits by title?
While looking in to this I downloaded the free "lite" version of WebLog Expert and ran it on some of codestore's logs. Here are the stats for June this year. Interesting stuff (if you're me) - more than a million hits and 100,000 visitors.
So, what do you lot do to keep the boss happy when it comes to reporting page hits? Is there an off-the-shelf Holy Grail of reporting that gives managers everything they want? Or do I need to do some heavy-duty coding?
