ftpstats - FTP Log summarizer SYNOPSIS
ftpstats [options] DESCRIPTION
Ftpstats dissects the defined ftp log and reports various statistics as requested. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. OPTIONS
-f filename Use filename rather than the default /var/log/xferlog -r Include real users. -a Include anonymous users. -h Include report on hourly traffic. -d Include report on domain traffic. -t Report on total traffic by section. -i Report on incoming traffic only (uploads). -o Report on outgoing traffic only (downloads). -Ddomain Report only on traffic from domain This option leads to problems with the local domain: e.g. is encountered under test and not recognized under com, -D com will give you only stats about com excluding! Use -A com for correct results. -Aaddress Report only on traffic from addresses whose end matches address e.g. -A will report on address ending with -ldepth Depth of path detail for sections -ssection Section to report on. e.g. -s /pub will report only on paths under /pub BUGS
