    a page on your server for the first time As long as the same site keeps making requests within a given timeout period they will all be considered part of the same Visit If the site makes a request to your server and the length of time since the last request is greater than the specified timeout period default is 30 minutes a new Visit is started and counted and the sequence repeats Since only pages will trigger a visit remotes sites that link to graphic and other non page URLs will not be counted in the visit totals reducing the number of false visits Pages are those URLs that would be considered the actual page being requested and not all of the individual items that make it up such as graphics and audio clips Some people call this metric page views or page impressions and defaults to any URL that has an extension of htm html or cgi A KByte KB is 1024 bytes 1 Kilobyte Used to show the amount of data that was transfered between the server and the remote machine based on the data found in the server log Common Definitions A Site is a remote machine that makes requests to your server and is based on the remote machines IP Address Hostname URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator All requests made to a web server need to request something A URL is that something and represents an object somewhere on your server that is accessable to the remote user or results in an error ie 404 Not found URLs can be of any type HTML Audio Graphics etc Referrers are those URLs that lead a user to your site or caused the browser to request something from your server The vast majority of requests are made from your own URLs since most HTML pages contain links to other objects such as graphics files If one of your HTML pages contains links to 10 graphic images then each request for the HTML page will produce 10 more hits with the referrer specified as the URL of your own HTML page Search Strings are obtained from examining the referrer string and looking for known patterns from various search engines The search engines and the patterns to look for can be specified by the user within a configuration file The default will catch most of the major ones User Agents are a fancy name for browsers Netscape Opera Konqueror etc are all User Agents and each reports itself in a unique way to your server Keep in mind however that many browsers allow the user to change it s reported name so you might see some obvious fake names in the listing Entry Exit pages are those pages that were the first requested in a visit Entry and the last requested Exit These pages are calculated using the Visits logic above When a visit is first triggered the requested page is counted as an Entry page and whatever
