What is SmarterStats?

SmarterStats is a Web log analytics tool that cost-effectively delivers accurate and detailed Web site statistics for a single site or tens of thousands of sites across a distributed network. SmarterStats supports numerous log file types, such as Internet Information Server (IIS) and Apache on Windows and Linux Web servers. The unique methodology in which SmarterStats interprets and converts log files reduces disk space utilization up to 85% while creating an ideal platform for reporting statistics and data mining.

Professional vs. Enterprise Editions

SmarterStats Professional edition is built and priced for companies or individuals who support anywhere from one to many sites on a single server.

SmarterStats Enterprise edition is built for companies such as medium to large Web hosts, internet service providers, corporations, or various other enterprise-level organizations running a distributed architecture network. Using a single Web interface plus a Web service that is installed on each log-generating server, the functionality of SmarterStats Enterprise is optimally distributed across your network to provide advanced features for system administrators and end users alike. This results in fewer software licenses and a reduction in hardware costs associated with additional servers. SmarterStats Enterprise can reduce the number of reporting servers 30-to-1 over competing products.

Finally, SmarterStats Enterprise provides industry-standard Web services that allow easy integration into external applications. This means that the vast majority of management tasks associated with providing log analysis (adding or deleting sites and users, etc.) are fully automated. This drastically reduces the cost of ownership for system administrators. Because of this, SmarterStats is the log analysis package of choice for some of the largest companies in the world.
