httpd-analyseThe most horrid command to type in,
but it will probably only be in makefiles
Standard input is an httpd log file.
Standard output is a version of the
log file with the document name simplified
if necessary, and the IP adderss
turned into DNA name form if this
is possible at the time.
Checking DNS for every line of a
300k line file rather hammers it
and is not considered friendly by
DNS administrators, so there are
various ways to use a local hosts
file. The hosts file may be read
in, appended to, and/or output at
the end. Note that the format is
not the usual /etc/hosts file format!
- Just look me up this IP address.
Exits immediately after giving you
- -hi file
- Use this hosts file as input.
Many host files may be given with
separate occurences of this option.
- -ha file
- Append to this host file.
After all "-hi" host files have
been read, this is read in. It is
then opened for appen, and any new
host names found are appended to
it. The count fieldof this file is
not valid, as future occurences of
the same hostname will not be
- -ho file
- When all processing has
been finished, the list of all hosts
so far is dumped on this file.
Thsi information includes a count
of all accesses to each host.
- Verbose. print out progress (per
1000 lines), error messages, new
hosts, etc. to stderr.
- Very verbose. Explanations of
DNS error messages are larger. Implies
Host file formatLines starting with "#" are ignored.
Every other line has the following
ipaddress status count name
- is a regular dot-separated-decimal
address, like 188.8.131.52;
- is zero if the name is good,
else the h_errno value which defined
what sort of a lookup problem there
- If -ho has been used, the number
of times the host has been accessed
- is the DNS name of the host if
known, else "?".
