I use AWStats (file: awstats-6.1-1.noarch.rpm) on a
Suse 9.1 box. I analyze a number of different web
server log files and have trouble with a log by IBM
HTTP Server 1.3.26 (which is a slightly repackaged
Apache version).

My problem: the "/js/awstats_misc_tracker.js" works and
produces the required log entries, but AWStats only
recognizes the screen size (correctly) when parsing the
logs. In the Miscellaneous sections, I only get dashes
instead of values.

Here are two log lines:

xx - - [18/Aug/2004:22:48:20 -0400] "GET
/js/awstats_misc_tracker.js HTTP/1.1" 200 4669 "h
ttp://xx/wps/portal/.scr/Exit" "Mozilla/4.0
(compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET
CLR 1.1.4322)"
xx - - [18/Aug/2004:22:48:20 -0400] "GET
/js/awstats_misc_tracker.js?screen=1280x800&cdi=3
2&java=true&shk=n&fla=y&rp=y&mov=y&wma=y&pdf=y&uid=awsuser_id1092883699306r4988&sid=awssession_id109
2883699306r4988 HTTP/1.1" 200 4669
"http://xx/wps/portal/.scr/Exit" "Mozilla/4.0 (compa
tible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)"

This looks fine to me. In my config, I also set the
URL correctly:
MiscTrackerUrl="/js/awstats_misc_tracker.js"

And the reporting is also fine:
ShowMiscStats=ajdfrqwp

So how come the screen size is reported correctly but
not the miscellaneous stats?

    As it turns out, the miscellaneous stats seem to be counted
    somewhat. Here's how they're displayed:

    Add to favorites (estimated) 1 / 8 Visitors 12.5 %
    Browsers with Java support - 100 %
    Browsers with Macromedia Director Support - 20.8 %
    Browsers with Flash Support - 100 %
    Browsers with Real audio playing support - 94 %
    Browsers with Quicktime audio playing support - 85 %
    Browsers with Windows Media audio playing support - 100 %
    Browsers with PDF support - 100 %

    As you can see, only the "Add to favorites" actually has a
    visitors number. The other values only seem to display
    percentages, no absolute values.

    This is the normal way of working.
    For browsers with, only a percent is given because reporting
    a value on hits does not mean a lot and calculating visitors
    is not possible yet.

    If that is the normal behavior and the "number column is"
    always empty then I suggest to remove this column from this
    table (which would also including removing the numeric value
    for "Adding to favorites".

    I submitted enhancement request 1034743
    (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1034743&group_id=13764&atid=363764)
    for removing the "number of visitors" column.
