ANN: 'waccess' 1.61 Released
I have just released version 1.61 of 'waccess':
'waccess' is a Quick And Dirty web access log analysis tool. It's useful if you want to see how many hits a particular file has seen on your web site. It will also attempt to get the names of the accessing hosts by doing reverse lookups on their IP addresses.
'waccess' is not a replacement for a serious web log analysis tool, but it is quite handy nonetheless.
'waccess' is written in Python and needs a reasonably current version of the langugage on your machine.
'waccess' was written for and tested on FreeBSD 4.6R, but should port to other systems pretty trivially.
This version adds two features:
- User can now name the log to examine on the command line instead of having to edit the string constant in the source.
- The program now supports 'ignoring' IP addresses. You can designate which IP address spaces you do not care about and 'waccess' will ignore all records from such addresses.
Changes to the FreeBSD port have been committed as well.
