Information about the operation of your site is critical for decision-making.
To obtain this information, you need to analyze statistics data that is
written to log files in your home directory on the server:
- Error log - stores data about errors generated by
the server (e.g. Page Not Found error) or by your CGI scripts;
- Transfer log - stores combined data about every visit
to your site, including:
- Remote host IP (i.e. visitor's IP);
- Time of request (i.e. when visitor requested the page);
- First line of request;
- Error generated by request, if any;
- Size of message sent in response to the request;
- Referrer (i.e. from which page visitor was directed);
- Agent ID (i.e. type of browser or another agent and related information,
such as user's OS, etc.) ;
- Referrer log - stores the list of URLs from which
visitors are referred to your site; and
- Agent log - stores data about agents used to enter
the site -- such as browsers or any other Internet-based software -- and
all related data.
