I imported a logfile in Piwik. Though I know that AWStats and Piwik generate different numbers, I still don’t know how Piwik filters the imported data from the logfile, here is an example:
Logs import summary ------------------- 243847 requests imported successfully 659002 requests were downloads 1817102 requests ignored: 43592 HTTP errors 992469 HTTP redirects 142 invalid log lines 0 requests did not match any known site 0 requests did not match any --hostname 765275 requests done by bots, search engines... 15624 requests to static resources (css, js, images, ico, ttf...) 0 requests to file downloads did not match any --download-extensions
[li] In AWStats a lot less requests by bots are identified, how does Piwik identify those requests and how are they filtered?
[/li][li] Downloads with status code 206 (partial download) seem to be filtered out completely in Piwik, so even if a user downloads a complete file in multiple parts, this won’t show up as a complete download?
[/li][li] I don’t understand the ignored HTTP requests? Which logfile entries are ignored here?
Help is very much appreciated.
Thanks and regards,
