  • Hi everyone,

    I use the logresolvemerge.pl script to merge a a couple (up to 90) virtual
    host access log files and I have an awstats config for each domain and for the
    server all together.

    awstats.all.conf
    LogFile="perl /path/to/logresolvemerge.pl /home/logs/*.log |"

    If I sum all domains by hand I get around 20% more visitors than I get using
    the all configuration with logresolvemerge.

    Does anyone have an explanation for that?

    Best Regards from Berlin

    Hi,

    You mean 20% more visits or 20% more unique visitors ?

  • 20% more visits. For the uniques I don't have a number currently.

    Say that a visitor goes to site A and that he follows a link there to site B
    and that both sites A and B are among your 90 virtual hosts. These events will
    count as 1 visit on site A and 1 visit on site B, but logresolvemerge will
    only count 1 visit to the group of 90 virtual hosts.

  • Ok, thank you very much for your hints. I'm still wondering that it makes a
    20% difference because our hosts are related to completely different topics.
