    Question statistic report regarding links pressed in asp pages? MTS?IIS?


    NOT SURE It's an MTS matter or just IIS , and if not, do tell me what is the software to use for it,a dn where to ask.

    I'd like to get a daily/weekly/monthly report regarding number of links that r pressed from my site.

    Details:
    1. I have 4 pages, and each page has a list of links.
    I'd like to get statistics reports regarding usage of these links. I.e. - I'd like to know how many times each link is pressed (pre day, week, month) by users.

    2. I would also like to know what hour/day/date each pressing took place, and also the IP number of the user.

    3. I would also like to know if possible to get the info as a table that can be edited later (if copied to excel etc.), and get Graphs also.

    We r using IIS (Intranet), OS IS windows NT, and DB is Microsoft Access.
    I'd like the administrator to perform such reports on a daily basis (and weekly and monthly as well), and send it to us (the asp programmers).
    I have no access to the live server (besdies copying files to there), so can not use the IIS/MTS myself.

    Thanks very much

    I would suggest having all links re-directed through a 'logging' page. So every link that is pressed goes something like : -

    log.asp?nexthost=next_URL

    So log.asp gets the site selected, writes to a db with time, from link, to link, remote IP etc, the redirects to the selected site.

    You could do this very easily just using asp & access, then adding reporting is straight forward.

    Hope this makes sense?

    Question It does make sense, but looks like a heavy traffic for MS-ACCESS


    Thanks.
    I have, at least, 5000 links. If each press will open a record in MS-Access, I may have 20,000-100,000 records just per one day.
    Looks to me that it will cause a very high traffic, and will make access to my pages slower b/c of that.

    That is why I think we'd better use a ready-made report, that is maybe possible by using Visual-Interdev(???)

    The admin uses this software, for managing asp pages on the live server.
    Is possible?
