Hierarchical Web server log analyzer.

What is Sawmill for Mac

Sawmill is a powerful, hierarchical log analysis tool, well suited for Web server access and referrer logs, but can process almost any log. It runs as a CGI program on your Web server, and publishes an intuitive graphical user interface which can be used from any Web browser to configure and run Sawmill, or to view the statistics pages. The statistics pages are hierarchical, attractive, and heavily crosslinked for easy navigation. Complete documentation is built directly into the program. Sawmill provides an extensive set of features, including a persistent database, fine control over the appearance of stats pages, and versatile log filtering options.

Sawmill is available in three versions: Lite, Professional, and Enterprise. Sawmill Professional includes its own internal database and Web server for report publishing. Reports can also be run in CGI mode on another Web server either local or remote.

I am a huge fan of Sawmill. I use it every month to create website traffic analysis reports for 20 customers' websites. For years I used WebTrends, but then they decided they did not want my money and so I looked at alternatives. Many alternatives. Sawmill is an excellent product. Flowerfire has very good support. My only negative is that the manual is not as clear and thorough as it could be. By the way, I also use Google Analytics on most sites as it is great when a customer wants a snapshot "right now".

This is pretty neat software that uses an epimodular approach to log analysis. It spits out really nice html that you can view from anywhere. I have it set up on a script so I can update and view my stats in a password protected web directory on the server. It's good at differentiating traffic type to.

Sawmill is a highly flexible if sometimes daunting application. It is miles ahead of other packages in terms of the ability to filter, format, and otherwise dig through my Web logs. Two features that I like are: the ability to filter out MY visits to my (remotely hosted) site, as well as identifiable bots; and, the ability to trace visitors paths through the site. I've gleaned valuable information (not sure it is yet profitable) about how visitors traverse my site. To the first point, I was surprised my how much of the traffic that Webalizer and Analog (provided by my Web host) report are, in fact, due to my own visits and the visits of bots.

No, no, even though webalizer and analog exist, this one is worth every penny. It's quite powerful, and has a clean interface. I love my webalizer, but I would take Sawmill over it, any day of the week.

Who needs this when Webalizer exists? Analog? Don't even think about buying this.

This is the most flexible log analysis tool I have found. Using customized filters, the software gives you very fine grained control over the way the information is recorded (into Sawmill's database - it will never change your original log files) and analyzed. While good for beginners (will run well out of the box, auto detecting your log type), it will be most useful to technically minded people who dig into Sawmill's abilities. The best feature is the "paths through the site" which shows the paths that your visitors traveled in a logical tree configuration. The creators of Sawmill seem committed to both quality and usability. Updates are released often, and they will pay you (by reducing the cost of the software) to evaluate the software and report any bugs.
