online via a Web browser. Funnel Web 2.0 provides post process archiving of
log files using using Aladdin Systems' Stuffit Engine (Mac only), ZIP and
Gzip compression and allows automated upload and download of log files from
remote sites using FTP. In addition, built in email notification provides
report summaries and completion reports at specified intervals," he said.

Ideal for small to medium sized web sites, the standard version of
Funnel Web provides more than 20 different reports and statistics and can
