Analysing Log Files
Mao, Y (2010) Analysing Log Files. Technical Report CS10-01-00, Department of Computer Science, University of Cape Town.
A digital repository stores a collection of digital objects that can be accessed from other computers via networks and has become widely used as academic storage libraries nowadays. This project explores the usefulness of analysing Web log files for improving the use of digital repositories. A log analysis tool collects information about visitors from the Web log files, summaries them and produces a broader overview of useful statistics. Evaluation suggests that the analysis of log files can give the user an overview and characteristics of the repository and information about the background of visitors, and thus improve the use of the digital repository.
