View Full Version : Server stats program?

What is a good program to generate stats from my .log file?

I use http://jk2.gamersimpact.com/
and find that very good. You need linux or win32 with perl 5 installed.

Is there a stats program that can be used without perl5?

05-13-2002, 11:38 PM
Not that I know of. Perl is very good at test analysis which is why many people use perl in there stats progs.
There might be some, but I havn't come across any, sorry.

I'm working on a new parser which will pair perl and mysql as a data store. With a good presentation layer, this will allow for much more thorough and entertaining stats tracking.

My cohort is working on a 'basic' php interface to the db to ensure we have something we can release to the world at large. I'd expect a few more weeks of development and testing before we're ready to ask for interested folks willing to put it through its paces and provide bug reports.

Keep an eye out if so interested. :)

I don't know if this will help you out or not, but I wrote a Perl/MySQL Stats system for Quake 3. From what I have seen of JKII logs they didn't change the format so the parser should still be something that you may like to look at.

It is completely modular, and if I had the time could probably have a module written that would parse JKII logs.

Anyway, if you would like to look at it, it is GPL'ed, so take as much or as little as you want.

The Darkside jedi knight game servers are using an asp based log parser from what I've seen which automaticaly updates every 15 seconds.

VImpaler, does your stats program colorize nonstandard color codes such as ^H, ^V, ^a, ^[, ^&

05-16-2002, 06:57 PM
Ya, I actually haven't run across any color code on which it doesn't work. Well, normal codes as in ^?, but the OSP codes it doesn't deal with yet, becuase they are basically HTML color codes, and I haven't seen a need to put it in yet.

Run a server and get a huge log file filled with all sorts of users. There is a small percentage of people that dont colorize their names with the standard ^0-9 codes and use letters or anything else. Its always a good idea to account for those.

I've been running it on 6 servers for about 5 months now, no color codes, other than the OSP codes(IE "FFFFFF"), are being skipped, as far as I can tell.

ya have a website where your stats are being shown?

The display needs a lot of work, like the calculations it does to figure the average Skill,Score,Efficiency,etc. are wrong so a lot of the data looks wrong, but it is correct in the database, and it also needs to be split into pages. I may get around to it someday :).

You might try NOP or AWStats, both are for Q3, but very well may work with JKII to an extent.
