Good recommendation,
Only make sure that you .htaccess it with a strong user/pass combination because it contains exploitable vulnerabilities. As do most of those web analysis applications.

Subject: Web log file analysis tool

| Hi!
| Currently, I'm looking for a web log file analysis tool which does not
| cause too much traffic/load on our LAMPP web servers.
| I've tried hobbit monitor (http://*hobbit*mon.sourceforge.net), but was
| disappointed, since the script I needed to search for suspicious
| patterns (bb-msgs.pl) was not part of the main package.
| I've also installed awstats (http://awstats.sourceforge.net/) which uses
| worms.pm to look for suspicious windows worms.
| However, I would love to find a plugin for awstats (or another program) | that could also detect XSS attempts - as far as this is possible using
| only Apache log files.
| Thank you very much in advance.
| Yours sincerely,
| Anja Hofmann
