nginx stats

Curious what others use for stats for their nginx servers. With apache I've always used awstats, but I've never bothered to research what people use with nginx most commonly, as I've always been a big apache fan in general. Just recently starting to heavily utilize nginx.


  • awstats can also work with nginx

    Just wasn't sure if it's a "favorite" or not. Haven't spent much time branching out with stats either, interested to learn if I'm missing something.

  • awstats/webalizer are the popular ones :)

  • AwStats works absolutely fine with Nginx.

    The default log format that nginx spits out is roughly the equivalent of the default apache/httpd output which will be pretty much what awstat or webalizer is capable of.

    I generally don't enable access_log on some of my sites, just error log, since I usually have piwik or google analytics handle all that for me (and server wise it's faster than nginx writing a log for every access).

    PS: If I do, I tend to like using webalizer in a standalone manner (ie: can be run from the command line and pointed to a specific log file, and can be set up on a cron job without having to deal with cgi-bin etc).
