    I want to activate logaholic on my servers. However, this means having yet another stats program process everyday. What is everyone else doing. It seems a bit much to run analog, AWStats and Logaholic. Thoughts?

    I have a small client base, many of which do not really use all of the stats programs. Most of the data provided in one can be easily found in others. I am currently only running AWStats and Logaholic, and have sent out notices that AWStats is being retired at the end of the month.

    Granted, I may get some complaints but I keep my servers current with the latest updates and software. It works for my business, and I can make the claim that old software, which can be easier to exploit, is not worth the risk.

    I've had analog disabled for years. uses too much space as I recall. Webalizer will probably get the boot and sent the way of analog soon enough here on my servers. Awstats I would never disable. Several of my older accounts have many years worth of historic data in it.
    Logaholic is the new guy on the block and I think its great stuff. Too new to find any complaints with it so far.

    It would be fabulous if they made a conversion script for awstats considering it's popularity. Hard to do considering awstats results are html. I guess my question now is, how do awstats and logaholic run together in terms of resources?

    Concerning conversion:
    Basically, it will be crazy-crazy...to try and convert HTML back into a domlog...probably not impossible, but not easy...and even it you could extrapolate the data, I'd be willing to bet that it wouldn't contain every-little-detail that was in the original log

    Concerning resources:
    I'm not sure what kind of resources awstats normally uses. Logaholic can be fairly intense but it's speed reasonable. If you have a LOT of heavy traffic'd sites on the same server, you will likely see some performance issues during domlog processing.

    All that said, I think the end result is better: you can make comparisons that aren't possible with the others. Logaholic is being actively developed, so it's likely to only improve, both with interface and usability as well as in the internals of the application and its parsing.

    small anecdote...my experience only...you will need to evaluation your own experience:
    I was testing a domlog yesterday...it had ~1.5 million entries (512mb file) that took about 25 minutes to process on a idle box; the load went from about .3 to 2.3 over that time period....while that seems outrageous, the same domlog with webalizer did NOT complete within 45 minutes and had similar load.
