wwwerrs - httpd log rotation for wwwstat
wwwerrs [error log name]
This program reads the httpd error_log logfile (or whatever file is
given as the single argument) looking for failed requests (bad URLs)
which include a valid Referer (and thus can be tracked to the origin of
the reference). It assumes that the error_log has been enhanced to
include the referer information (as in NCSA 1.4 and later).
The output is an HTML file that makes it easy to check references. The
script should be edited to discard normal error messages, where normal
is dependent on your particular server.
