At work, I currently use WebTrends Enterprise Suite (3.5, I think)
on a Windows NT box for web log analysis and reporting. It produces
pretty pictures and charts that executive sorts like, and does a
pretty good job of it.
Unfortunately, it also manages to crash randomly, as does the NT box
as a whole. Having better things to do with my time than babysit the
two of them, re-run missed reports, and such, I've been considering
trying to move off the NT box onto a Solaris or Linux box.
I've noticed that WebTrends Enterprise Reporting Server is available
for Solaris and Linux, and costs the same as Enterprise Suite. But
on WebTrends' web site, I have been unable to find a head-to-head
comparison of the two products. Enterprise Suite's brochure says it's
the "most comprehensive" or some such, while Enterprise Reporting
Server's says it's the "most powerful."
I don't care about the marketing fluff; I want a comparison of specs,
features and such. :) So I'll be pestering WebTrends to see if they
can cough one up.
In the meantime, I'm curious as to whether anyone out there in Usenet
land has actually used both of these products, or moved from one to
the other (either way). If you have, I'd be interested in hearing
your thoughts, opinions and experiences.
I'm sending followups to c.i.w.s.unix, since I'm hoping to wind up on
the UNIX side of things.
