I am pleased to announce the official release of Analog version 3.0. The
release of version 3 coincides with Analog’s third birthday yesterday.

This is the first official release of Analog 3! This version adds many new
features, compared to Analog 2, including 11 new reports, user customizable
log formats, hierarchical reports, and much much more.

Macintosh versions of Analog are available from:

Analog is a program to analyse the logfiles from your web server. It tells
you which pages are most popular, which countries people are visiting from,
which sites they tried to follow broken links from, etc. It has the
following advantages over other similar programs.

* It’s free!

* It’s fast Very fast. Analog can uncompress and process 1.5 million
logfile lines per minute (on a 266MHz G3, your mileage may vary). That’s
1GB of data every 7 minutes!

* It’s easy to install and run.

* Analog can handle very large logfiles. Results depend on your system, but
at least one site using it on logfiles of over 250 million lines (25GB)
with no trouble.

* It’s very flexible. The default output will be satisfactory for most
people, but there are hundreds of options producing 27 different reports
for those who want to do things differently.

* It can output in 14 different languages.

* It understands WebStar, Quid Pro Quo, Boulevard, MacHTTP, Microsoft
Personal Web Server, Apple Share IP 5.0, and NetPresenz log formats as well
as the common log file format, NCSA/Apache combined format, referrer log,
browser log, W3C extended format, Microsoft IIS v3 and v4 format, Netscape
format, and the user can specify additional formats.

* It should work on any Macintosh, and versions are also available for
Windows (3, 95 & NT), DOS, lots of flavors of Unix, OS/2, VMS, Acorn
RiscOS, BeOS, and BS2000/OSD.

* A recent survey showed that over 20% of webmasters use Analog, more than
any other logfile analysis program. Try asking AltaVista for some of them.

* Oh, one more thing. It is Year 2000 compatible. (And so were all previous
