Requests to all centrally managed web sites are logged, i.e. a record is kept for every request for a web page or file (including images), whether it is succesful or not. Web site logs have many usages: statistics generation, analysis of site usage, debugging of errors, identification of broken links...
Web site administrators can download the log files for their web site from the log file download page. Different log formats are proposed for easy analysis of the information.
Please notice that logs are only available for the current year.
Options when retrieving log files
Log formatsSeveral text formats are available for the log files
- HTML: renders log files in a human-readable way that can be displayed in the web browser.
- CSV: (coma-separated values) a common, text-based data exchange format. Use it to import the log data into a spreadsheet or database for further processing.
- W3C Extended: a standard log format that can be processed natively by most log-analysis tools in order to generate statistics.
Time zonesYou can control how each log entry's timestamp is computed
- UTC: (Universal Time Coordinated) is equivalent to GMT (Greenwich Meridian Time). This is the standard international time.
- Local Geneva Time: (UTC+1) timestamps will indicate Geneva time, including daylight savings changes.
Download formatsYou can choose how log files are retrieved
- Single log file: all the log entries over the requested period will be retrieved in a single, flat file. It can be compressed within a ZIP file in order to save bandwidth.
- Daily log files: generates a separate log file for each day over the requested time period. These log files are packaged in a single ZIP file for you to download.
