Why Hosts And Not Ip And L10counter?


Recommended Posts

I would like to know why Awstats display hosts and not ip by totalchoice.Is there any special reason?On my previosly hostings it was always IP and not hosts.

Awstats is cctually excellent statistic but display of hosts instead of IP is a annoying.

I would like actually to invstigate and possible ban:

 

42.70-84-65.reverse.theplanet.com

 

who made for march 15895 visits and 15895 clicks and use 840.65 MB ( 10 - 20 times more than any other IP) but reversing hosts to IP give not any info.

Anybody here who can help and answer qeustion above about hosts instead of ip.

Second question is question about Level10 counter?

Is it safe to install such a script (php version)?

http://www.leveltendesign.com/L10Apps/HC/

 

It looks great and attractive but should this script made a huge pressure on database if you have 40 - 50 visitors online and raising of CPU?

 

 

Thanks

I read over the docs and unless your site is generating a ton of traffic you should be ok installing this.

 

If you start using more resources and bogging down the server you will be notified to remove the script.

So i can install script and then if it start to use more resources only script will be disabled by hoster and i'll get notice about it without disabling my account?

 

And what about Awstats and problem with hosts?

Why not IP instead of hosts?

Example myself who visited site very oft have

 

20703 visits and 446523 hits with only 336.08 MB bandwidth.

So it is very import to have clear ip and not hosts.

I don't know if you will be suspended first and then notified. You would have to ask the help desk that question. (most likely it would be suspended if it is using up resources)

 

AwStats is configured to do a reverse DNS lookup. The raw logs are available to you to download and use any web stats analyzing software you choose.

If the script uses excessive resources and causes the server to crash then the account would be suspended and the owner notified.

 

We have had AWStats set up in the past to display the IP only but then we received many requests for showing the hosts. You can edit the AWStats config file for your domain in the /tmp/awstats folder of your account to turn off the RDNS lookup.

IS possible to show both IP and Hosts.

If not then i would like to do it to show ip but how?

I do not have access to config file of Awstats!?

Not possible to show both. If you go into the "tmp/awstats" folder on your domain you will find a awstats.you-TCH-domain.conf file. You need to edit this file and find this section.

 

># If you want to have information on domains/countries visitors, you must ask
# AWStats to make reverse DNS lookup (if not already done in your log file).
# If you set DNSLookup to 1, don't forget that reverse DNS lookup decrease
# seriously AWStats time processing.
# If you keep DNSLookup to 0, all hosts will be reported by the IP addresses
# and not by the full hostname of visitors. Domain/Country chart will also 
# report all visitors from a domain/country "Unknown".
# Possible values: 0 or 1
# Default: 0
# 
DNSLookup=1

 

Replace the 1 with a 0 (zero) and save the file. Next time stats are run th reverse lookup will not be performed.

Sorry for the confusion. I've editted my post to make it a little clearer. I was answering too quickly before I had to run to a meeting before.

 

Also note that you would need to change the permissions on the .conf file to 444 so that it will not be overwritten when the stats run with a default config file.
