Web Server Log Analysis

If you have a web app running on a web server, you know that it is so helpful to analyse the access and error logs to get information about how it is functioning. Systems administrators use different tools to analyse HTTP statistics, but not all of them provide enough information. For instance, Google Analytics can't provide client IP addresses which might be really useful to have then you want to investigate what was going on. By looking into a website access log it is possible to extract client IP addresses and analyse their reputation. Therefore, it is essential to use special instruments for log analysis. As an illustration, RST Cloud shows which malicious sources that had repeatedly attacked other websites contacted your web server.
