As far as i know AWStats and Webtrends i must say that
each ine has it's advantages.
Webtrends is an excellent Tool for the marketing and management guys
where you can generate reports on specific campaigns and so on.
But sometimes it's very tricky to find a specific Problem.
Probably this has become better in Version 7
but i haven't worked with it yet.

AWStats on th other hand just get's you all the basic information
and is very easy and fast to setup.
For the reason AWStats is written in Perl and usually runs CGI
you have to be aware of Security leaks.
Especially when it is accessible from the internet.

Dear friends,

I'd like to know your oppinion on which are the most powerful and flexible
Log Analyzers for Web Servers and Proxy Servers.
They can be commercial or freeware.
We already know WebTrends, but would like to test alternatives.
