    About AWstats ;

    These questions are for people which are using awstat from long time .

    With regards to CPU usage AWstats could cause problems ?

    With regards to disk usage AWstats could grow /usr or /home dir ?

    I turned mine off on the advice of a friend who mentioned it would lighten the servers load a bit. He was dead on the money.

    I use it without any trouble. I don't have a lot of accounts on my server though.

    I just love awstats :)

    There are many items that adds to server load. These includes some useful or and essential feautures like awstats, daily backups etc. Ultimately I think one should keep a balance between the number of accounts served and the features you want to provide. Some clever juggling of scheduling of such tasks may be needed to make it all work smoothly. ;)

    I use it and it's great. Pretty stats and multi-language.

    It copies log files into the user's webspace. If the user someday feels he doesn't want them taking up space, he can delete them.

    It's in home/USERNAME/tmp/awstats but perhaps it's a symlink...I'm not too familiar with the system yet. Nor do I even know exactly what a symlink is for that matter...

    I only offer Awstats. I had all 3 up for a littel while and isntead of wasting space, I decided on 1. All my customers use it as apposed to the others so I went with awstats.

    We turn on AWStats for all servers. With the exception of about two weeks when things were funky and the stats wouldn't run, it's been fine - no real load issues, even for large sites, and some clients would just die without their AWStats. Like Bailey, I'd be inclined to shut off the other stats programs, but clients do use them, so there you go. BTW, Bailey, if you have individuals who want to blast those two, deleting the folders from the user's /tmp seems to do the trick - webalizer and analog have yet to recreate themselves on client accounts where we removed those at the client's request to save them some space. Or you could just shut them off in the tweak settings area to stop them altogether for everyone.
