is a popular web server log file analysis program that can be installed
directly on a Virtual Server. Http-analyze will analyze your web server
log files in-place and then create HTML reports of your web site traffic.
Our Web Development Team has made http-analyze freely available for easy
installation on all Virtual Servers.
Previous versions of http-analyze were not Y2K compliant and have
not functioned correctly since 12/31/1999. We have patched the following
version http-analyze so that it is Y2K compliant, but we cannot guarantee
the performance of this patch. The patch has been applied to previously
installed versions of http-analyze on all Virtual Servers. You do
not need to re-install http-analyze in order to apply this fix.
