Configuring a Web Server-Based Data Source

You can use the web server log file data as the source for your analysis of web server-based data source.

  1. In the left pane, click Administration > Application Settings > Data Sources.
  2. Click New.
  3. In the Data Source Type dialog, select Web: Log File and click Next.
  4. Read the warning message about creating a non-SDC data source and click Next.
  5. Identify the location of the log files, which are your web server-based data. FTP server access to log files located on a computer other than the analysis computer or a share drive slows down Webtrends analysis, especially if several profiles use the same data source and Webtrends must download the same file multiple times.
  6. Save the data source.
