As my first post I would like to share a new tool that I have been developing in my “free time” after joining the Accenture Enkitec Group.
So far, I have been calling it “apalyzer”, or “apache access_log analyzer”. As the name implies, it is a tool to analyze the apache access_log file, and give a quick overview of number of requests, requests that took long time to process, bytes returned, number of accesses per IP/Address, etc. Having a strong background in the Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Applications, I naturally added a few things for the EBS shops, like number of forms request x framework requests and login/logout information.
It is a shell script that requires no installation. Just unzip the file, unzip it where you have the logs and run:
ea3.sh <access_log file name>
It will generate a zip file that you can bring to your computer, unzip and open with a browser the *START_HERE* file.
If you want to give it try, you can download it here.
If you want to see a sample output first, download it here.
Best of all, it is free!
