    We are currently using an older version of WebTrends to analyse our log files.

    Unfortunately we can't do any decent analysis of sessions, where the session id is passed through the query string.

    Does anybody know of any good products out there, free or otherwise, that allow us to do this?

    Thanks,
    Ben.

    I would recommend AXS available at http://www.xav.com/scripts/axs/. A small amount of CGI knowledge is useful, but the installation manual is generally very helpful

    Ben,

    You should look into Fast Stats by Mach5 Software. It allows you to define filters and I believe it will let you do what you want.

    Sincerely,

    Jason C. Levine

    I use Urchin for log analysis. It's fairly easy to setup and it's FREE! The best part is that, although it's free, Urchin's tech support people are willing to help if you run into problems.
    You can go to their site at www.urchin.com and download the current version. It runs on apache and linux best but they do support other os's and webservers. It also has a fast dns lookup engine.
    You do, however, need access rights to install software on your server and make system changes (cron job, modifying apache config).
    It has a nice interface and only uses system resources when the logs are parsed, which can be set to run during off-peak hours. The stats are viewable as cgi generated html pages.

    Hope this helps!
