Each time report can contain columns listing the requests, requests for pages, and bytes transferred at that time, using the following code letters.
HOURCOLS Pbtells analog to include the number of page requests and percentage of the bytes, in that order, as the columns for the Hourly Summary. The other COLS commands are MONTHCOLS, WEEKCOLS, DAYCOLS (Daily Summary), FULLDAYCOLS (Daily Report), FULLHOURCOLS (Hourly Report), QUARTERCOLS and FIVECOLS. There is also a TIMECOLS command, which specifies that all the time reports are to have the specified columns.
FULLDAYGRAPH Ptells analog to plot the bar charts in the Daily Report by the number of page requests. This also controls how analog decides which is the busiest time period in the bottom line of the report. Using a lower case letter tells analog to plot the bar charts with ASCII characters instead of the normal red bars. (This produces shorter output, and it is how they appear anyway in PLAIN and ASCII output styles, or when viewed with a non-graphical browser.) So, for example,
FULLDAYGRAPH bwould plot the Daily Report by bytes, without using the graphics. The other GRAPH commands are MONTHGRAPH, WEEKGRAPH, DAYGRAPH, HOURGRAPH, FULLHOURGRAPH, QUARTERGRAPH and FIVEGRAPH. There's also an ALLGRAPH command to set all of them simultaneously.
BARSTYLE a BARSTYLE b BARSTYLE c BARSTYLE d BARSTYLE e BARSTYLE f BARSTYLE g BARSTYLE hThe default style is b.
MONTHBACK ON # Monthly Report backwards WEEKBACK OFF # Weekly Report forwardsThe other BACK commands are FULLDAYBACK, FULLHOURBACK, QUARTERBACK and FIVEBACK. It tends to be confusing to mix directions (and analog will warn you if you attempt it) so usually you want to use the ALLBACK command which will set all of them at once.
QUARTERROWS 96 # only the last day's worth MONTHROWS 0 # 0 means no restriction: show all timeThe other ROWS commands are WEEKROWS, FULLDAYROWS, FULLHOURROWS and FIVEROWS. Even if a ROWS command is given, the line at the bottom of the report will still show the busiest time period ever, not just the busiest one in that many rows.
MARKCHAR =tells analog to use the equals sign.
There is a parameter called MINGRAPHWIDTH which sets the minimum nominal size of the graphs. For example, if you set
MINGRAPHWIDTH 10then the graph will be allowed to be up to 10 characters wide, even if that would exceed the PAGEWIDTH.
There is one more command which affects the time reports. You can specify which day should be counted as the first day of the week. This affects the layout of the Daily Report, Daily Summary and Weekly Report. For example, our local student newspaper publishes a new edition on the web every Friday, so they like to specify WEEKBEGINSON FRIDAY for their reports.
In the next section, we'll look at commands relating to the non-time reports.
