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.
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 : -
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?

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