awstats web site statistics for glassfish

awstats is a open source web server log analyzer. Glassfish is an open source java-based web-server. Click here to check out the statistics on my two glassfish domain servers: domain1 domain2. Of course you will restrict access when you deploy this.

To get the awstats package to work with glassfish:
  1. Download and untar awstats (to /usr/local/awstats)
  2. Follow the instructions for installing awstats and run the configuration utility.
    Remember to create the /etc/awstats/ and /var/lib/awstats/ directories and set write permission.
    Edit the config file (/etc/awstats/yourconfigfilename) and change the LogFile property to:
    LogFile="sed -e 's/"\([0-9\.]*\)"/\1 - -/g' -e 's/"\([^"]*-0800\)"/[\1]/g' /usr/local/java/web/glassfish/domains/domain1/logs/access/server_access_log.%YYYY-0-%MM-0-%DD-0.txt |"
    where "/usr/local/java/web/glassfish" is the location of your glassfish server. Also remember to change the time zone offset (mine is -0800) to your timezome offset.
    Change the DirIcons property to:
    You will probably want to change your SiteDomain and HostAliases properties to match your domain name.
    I got this info from Glen Smith's blog, Thanks!
  3. Open your glassfish admin page (, go to configuration -> http service and click the Access Logging enabled box.
    Click on the Access Log Tab and enter: %datetime% %request% %status% %response.length% %header.referer% %header.user-agent%
    in the Format text box.
    This makes your log format similar to the apache log format
  4. Go you your awstats/wwwroot directory and create a sub-directory WEB-INF
    Create a web.xml file in this directory that contains:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <web-app id="WebApp_ID" version="2.4"
    Afterwards, cd to the wwwroot/cgi-bin directory type chmod a-w *.pl just to be careful.
  5. Now, install this as a web server in the glassfish admin screen (
    Applications -> Web Applications -> Deploy
    And deploy the web server directory: /usr/local/awstats/wwwroot. Make sure your context root is awstats.

  6. Try to invoke the servlet as it's described in the awstats documentation:
    You should see the awstat config data. Cool!

In the 5th step, I couldn't deploy and I got this error:

Deploying application in domain failed; Error loading deployment descriptors for module [wwwroot]

type.2.4.a: Invalid content was found starting with element 'servlet-class'. One of

Do you know why it happened?

Đột nhiên trên tường thành có mấy đạo thân ảnh nhảy ra sau lưng của Nhạc Thành, chính là những trưởng lão có tu vi Đấu Tôn.

Nhạc Thành nhìn đám người này, tổng cộng có bảy mươi người tất cả, trong đó có những trưởng lão của Hồ Điệp cốc, Vạn Kim Môn, Cuồng Sư môn mà Nhạc Thành biết.

Vừa nghe thấy U Minh tông và Luyện Dược sư công hội sẽ công kích thành, tất cả mọi người đều lộ vẻ lo lắng, đặc biệt là khi biết có cường giả Đấu Thánh.

Tuy nhiên Nhạc Thành cũng không lo lắng, chỉ là một Thanh Ma mà thôi, lần trước Vũ Văn Nam để hắn chạy mất, không ngờ lần này hắn lại xuất hiện ở đây.

- Đến đây đi.

Nhạc Thành nhìn về phía xa xa mà nói, khóe miệng nở ra một nụ cười quỷ dị.

- Đến đây đi, mau đến đây.

Một lát sau nhìn thấy phương gia nghìn dặm chằng chịt thân ảnh, Nhạc Thành cất tiếng nói.

Trên tường thành, chúng đệ tử cũng khẩn trương, nhóm đệ tử

A phone call is a phone bring in which somebody converses with a few individuals in the meantime. The phone calls might be intended to permit the called gathering to take part amid the call, or the ring might be set so that the called party simply listens into the call and can't talk. It is now and again called ATC (sound video chat).
