If you’re starting a new settings document and just want to report on a single log file, you can: 1. Select Open from the File menu 2. Choose the log. TR will create a new document and set it to report upon the log you selected. The order in which TR examines your logs is worth noting. Since TR tracks each visitor by its dated file requests, if TR looks at log entries that aren’t in chronological order, it is apt to be confused. The consequence is that TR may undercount the number of visits your visitors made or possibly misidentify the entry/exit pages your visitors use. To solve this problem, TR automatically examines logs inside folders in the order of their creation dates. But what if you’ve downloaded your logs from an ftp and their creation dates aren’t in sequence? Then drag the individual logs into the table and TR will examine them by their order in the table.

Basics: Getting Started
Basics: Creating a Document

TrafficReport [“TR”] can make some pretty cool reports for you. But, before you can have it make you a report, you have to tell it what you’d like. In a restaurant, before you can eat, you need to place an order. To place an order with TrafficReport, you create a document and specify some key settings.

To make a document:

  1. Select New from the File menu. (An untitled document window will appear.)

    Document Window

  2. Click the Preferences button in this window. (The Preferences window will appear with the Log Location panel visible.)

    Preferences Window

  3. Drag your log files or folder(s) containing your Logs into the Log Location table. Or use the Add File and Add Folder buttons.

    Log Location Panel

  4. Select the Log Structure panel from the Panel table.
  5. Tell TR which server software produced your Logs (see the Specifying Your Logs’ Structure section).
  6. Click the Save button and close the Preferences window.

You’ve now told TR which Logs you’d like reported on, as well as the Logs’ structure. TR is ready to run some reports for you.
