I've got two servers with IIS 6 and I have to set up a statistics report for the website that is hosted in both servers. load balanced. Tried AW Stats but it is a pain. I'm using SmarterSTATS now , it sounds good. But it's like the servers logs are not producing numbers that this service could understand. Confused. N00b. Complete n00b

Awstats or SmarterSTATS should expect logfiles in "combined" format. Modify IIS to create files with that format.

I used SmarterStats, it worked well, and I had to reprocess my logs several times until I saw the accurate numbers. Took it's time. Bad thing is I can't create reports to all my users to see. – UXdesigner Aug 12 '10 at 20:26
