SmarterStats Administration

Whether you have a single server running multiple sites or hundreds of sites across multiple different Windows and Linux boxes, running thousands of websites, managing those sites and servers, and keeping it all running smoothly is a breeze.

Along with providing users with the tools they need to keep their businesses running, SmarterStats gives system administrators their own sets of tools that can help optimize performance and keep users happy.

Macro View

As a system administrator, SmarterStats gives you a high-level overview of the traffic being generated to the various web servers you manage. In addition, it’s possible to drill down into each server and see which sites are generating the traffic, making it easy to plan migrations of higher-volume sites to their own servers or VMs, not to mention finding sites that may be causing issues for other customers.

SmarterStats can read logs in a variety of formats. That includes the ability to process IIS or Apache logs, logs that are compressed (e.g., .ZIP or .GZ format), rotating logs and more. In addition, SmarterStats was built so that logs can be stored and accessed locally or remotely through FTP/FTPs, UNC and SAMBA shares.

Remote Processing

Enterprise customers also have access to the SmarterStats remote service, which resides on each separate web server in a datacenter or server farm. This service is responsible for 90% of all local SmarterStats tasks, such as gathering the log information, processing that information, and then communicating results back to the main reporting server for display.

Server Protection

In addition to knowing the traffic affecting web servers, it’s also necessary to keep tabs on the servers themselves. SmarterStats also gives system administrators the ability to see things like how many sites are on each server, the memory usage levels on each server, which sites are utilizing the most memory and more. This information means administrators can see potential troublesome sites and take action to prevent other sites on the server from slowing down.

SmarterStats supports multiple log file types, including IIS and Apache and allows access to those log files locally or remotely through FTP, UNC, SAMBA or remote service. SmarterStats can auto-detect log file types on a per-site basis and supports rotating logs to help conserve disk space.

Create Consistency

Keeping servers running at optimum levels means creating a level of consistency across the web servers and the web sites on those servers. SmarterStats allows System Administrators to create default rules for things like the length of time raw logs stay on the server before they’re deleted, how many pages to crawl -- and how many to crawl per minute -- when Site Tuning is enabled and more. These defaults can then be propagated to all sites and servers within the network, ensuring consistency and performance.

Save Space

SmarterStats incorporates a compression scheme that reduces the amount of raw log files stored on a web server. In a nutshell, SmarterStats takes traditional web server log files and segregates redundant data, turning log file data into an optimized file-based relational database. This already reduces log file sizes up to 80%, but SmarterStats further compresses these “SmarterLogs”, adding another 5-10% reduction in the size. This saves space as well as improves performance.
