You can deploy the SurfStatsLive Real-Time
Reporting Service using your infrastructure, as a live statistics
service to your customers. This makes SurfStatsLive an ideal web
analytics service solution, especially for website hosts, Internet
Service Providers (ISP's) and third-party web analytics service
providers with clients that require web activity statistics as a
primary or value-added live statistics service.
SurfStatsLive is a server-based analytics
product that requires a Windows 2000 Server computer. Apart from
IIS, the latest service packs and Internet Explorer which is standard
for most Windows installations, no additional software is required
for a SurfStatsLive installation. So why not start providing SurfStatsLive
as a live statistics service today using either log file analysis
SurfStatsLive can process
log sources from other IIS web servers and from other types
of web servers on Windows and other operating systems. As long as
a drive can be mapped to the location of the log files, SurfStatsLive
should be able to process the log files from the log source. No
web server log files.
Depending on your infrastructure and
other factors you would need to consider whether you want to install
SurfStatsLive on a dedicated server to collect log files from other
sources or physically on the web server(s). The
Planning an Installation
page provides more information about this. SurfStatsLive can also
act as a collector of statistics (Statistics Bureau Configuration)
from content web servers whose log files are not accessible, with
Statistics Bureau Configuration
page for more information.
Please Note: Nowhere during the
installation of SurfStatsLive (or afterwards) are you prompted to
select a configuration type, the configuration type would depend
on the way SurfStatsLive is used. One installation of SurfStatsLive
can also act as multiple configurations. It's only a logical distinction.
You can try out SurfStatsLive in a live environment by downloading
a 30-day no obligation trial version to see how it functions in
terms of reliability, scalability and suitability to your organizations
needs for a web analytics service. Please visit the
