This is a Python script and command-line tool, with no dependencies, that allows parsing data from Apache log files.

At this time it supports generating supports for:

  • uri - pageviews for each uri
  • time - datetime with highest request/second
  • status_code - hits for each http status code
  • referral - uris of referring sites
  • agent - hits for each user agent
  • subscriptions - the number of feed subscribers per uri. This is done by parsing user agents for their subscriber count.


Here are some example uses:

python parser.py access.log subscriptions
python parser.py access.log uri --quantity 5
python parser.py access.log agent --cutoff 100

There is help available at the command-line as well.

python parser.py --help
