Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a list of User-Agent strings and timestamp. I also have a unique identifier for the user. What is the best tool for analyzing this type of data?

Analysing for what? People's interest? Creating an table of most frequently used browsers? –  Lekensteyn Feb 17 '11 at 15:36
    
Yes, browser usage, OS usage, iPhone vs Android, iPad usage etc. And maybe how often users visit the site etc. –  rlovtang Feb 17 '11 at 15:42

Analog can handle this. With the appropriate logfile format you should be able to get reports by browser, O/S, user, and time reports. I am not sure it is updated for the latest browsers and platforms. But it does allow for recoding data, so you should be able to get the results you need.

That's analog.cx right? Googling for 'analog' yields a few result ;) –  rlovtang Feb 17 '11 at 20:07
    
Yes it is. I've always installed it using the package manager for my systems. –  BillThor Feb 18 '11 at 4:47

You can try http://piwik.org/

It is open source project trying to provide stuff similar to google analyitics.

It makes all the stats you mention based on logs.

Thanks Hrvoje, I have seen Piwik, and it looks quite impressive. Didn't know it could get input from log files. Will definitely check that out! –  rlovtang Feb 17 '11 at 20:05
