Many IIS administrators want to produce detailed log analysis reports for their Web sites, but are stymied by how expensive many log analysis packages are. A program such as Webtrends can cost upwards of several hundred dollars, and might be overkill for many people. Fortunately there's a free and relatively simple alternative for most admins: the Analog logfile analyzer.

Analog has been popular for a long time on Linux and other UNIX-type platforms, but also exists in a Windows binary version. Its current revision is 5.32, but a 5.90 beta is in the works, which includes exports to XML and XHTML. The program can reside anywhere on the system and works with all logfile formats supported by IIS (and can be instructed to use other logfile formats if needed).
