Awstats not updating ubuntu metaphor for dating a co worker
AWStats is one of the most popular tools for generating web site statistics from server logs, and it's also the one I have selected as a replacement for Google Analytics.
In spite of its extensive documentation, I've hit a couple of stumbling blocks while setting it up in my environment.
Given the advantages Geo IP has over DNS lookups I think that this shows clearly the advantage of using Geo IP.
AWStats is an open source Web analytics reporting tool, suitable for analyzing data from Internet services such as web, streaming media, mail and FTP servers.
AWStats parses and analyzes server log files, producing HTML reports.
What I intended to show here is how DNS lookups can affect awstats performance and why you should not use them.
(by the way, in default configuration DNS lookups are off).
