WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

H-Sphere integrates the following third-party log analyzers (traffic calculators):

Please also refer to Web Traffic Calculation in H-Sphere

 

Webalizer

Webalizer is one of the most popular traffic log analyzers. It is included to default H-Sphere installation and available for Linux-hosted accounts. Webalizer analyzes transfer log and generates readable HTTP transfer reports for a domain.

To activate the Webalizer resource, the Transfer Log resource must be enabled.

Webalizer is installed as the hsphere-webalizer-<version>-<build> package, where <version> is Webalizer version, and <build> is this package's build number.
See the list of packages installed with different H-Sphere versions on supported operating systems.

/hsphere/shared/bin/webalizer - Webalizer installation directory.

/hsphere/shared/apache/conf/webalizer_user.cfg - Webalizer config file.

In H-Sphere scripts directory, the following scripts are used for Webalizer activation and update:

- /hsphere/shared/scripts/webalizer-init - script for starting Webalizer
- /hsphere/shared/scripts/webalizer-stop - stop Webalizer
- /hsphere/shared/scripts/webalizer-update.pl - Perl script for Webalizer update

Webalizer directory for a domain: /hsphere/local/home/<user>/<domain.name>/webalizer/.
Webalizer statistics for a domain can be viewed at http://<domain.name>/webalizer/

For the location of user log files, please refer to Third-Party Traffic Calculation.

 

ModLogAn

ModLogAn is a third-party traffic calculation utility, similar to Webalizer.

To activate the ModLogAn resource, Transfer Log must be enabled.

ModLogAn is installed as the hsphere-modlogan-<version>-<build> package, where <version> is ModLogAn version, and <build> is this package's build number.
See the list of packages installed with different H-Sphere versions on supported operating systems.

/hsphere/shared/bin/modlogan - ModLogAn installation directory.

/hsphere/shared/apache/conf/modlogan_user.cfg - ModLogAn config file.

In the H-Sphere scripts directory, the following scripts are used for ModLogAn activation and update:

- /hsphere/shared/scripts/modlogan-init - script for ModLogAn initialization.
- /hsphere/shared/scripts/modlogan-stop - stop ModLogAn
- /hsphere/shared/scripts/modlogan-update.pl - Perl script for ModLogAn update

ModLogAn directory for a domain: /hsphere/local/home/<user>/<domain.name>/modlogan/.
ModLogAn statistics for a domain can be viewed at http://<domain.name>/modlogan/

For the location of user log files, please refer to Third-Party Traffic Calculation.

 

AWStats

AWStats is a free tool that generates advanced graphical web server statistics reports. AWStats is set up on each Unix/Linux and Windows web server with H-Sphere installation or upgrade. Statistics is calculated for each domain separately.

Starting with H-Sphere 2.5, AWStats is installed as the hsphere-awstats-<version>-<build> package, where <version> is AWStats version, and <build> is this package's build number.
See the list of packages installed with different H-Sphere versions on supported operating systems.

AWStats installation directory: /hsphere/shared/awstats.

Each domain has its own AWStats configuration file: /hsphere/local/home/<user>/<domain.name>/cgi-bin/awstats.<domain.name>.conf

AWStats log directory for a domain: /hsphere/local/home/<user>/<domain.name>/awstats/data/

AWStats statistics for a domain can be viewed at http://<domain.name>/cgi-bin/awstats.pl

For the location of user log files, please refer to Third-Party Traffic Calculation.

 

Urchin

Urchin is a third party Web analytics software integrated into H-Sphere. Urchin is installed and configured separately.

Urchin directory: /hsphere/local/urchin.

Urchin collects statistics for each domain into the /hsphere/local/urchin/var/logs/urchin-<domain_id>.log files. This statistics is transfered to the Urchin remote server via HTTP by means of the print-log.pl script located in cgi-bin directory of each domain directory.

Log file with Urchin history: /hsphere/local/urchin/data/history
