The author of List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature is also the author of a Web site entitled Dictionnaire de Bactériologie Vétérinaire. To avoid additional Web hosting fees (i.e. these Web sites are self-funded), Dictionnaire de Bactériologie Vétérinaire is included as a folder in List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature. So, statistics given below encompass the results of both sites.
Les sites List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature et Dictionnaire de Bactériologie Vétérinaire ne bénéficient d'aucun financement. Aussi, pour éviter des frais d'hébergement sur le serveur du CICT, le Dictionnaire de Bactériologie Vétérinaire se présente sous la forme d'un dossier inclus dans List of Procaryotic Names with Standing in Nomenclature. Les statistiques délivrées par le serveur concernent donc ces deux sites.
. Hits represent the total number of hits (requests) that actually resulted in something being sent back to the user. Not all hits will send data, such as 404-Not Found requests and requests for pages that are already in the browsers cache.
Additional information: Hits represent the total number of requests made to the server during the given time period (month, day, hour etc..). Any request made to the server which is logged, is considered a "hit". The requests can be for anything... html pages, graphic images, audio files, CGI scripts, etc... Each valid line in the server log is counted as a hit. This number represents the total number of requests that were made to the server during the specified report period.
. Files represent the total number of hits (requests) that actually resulted in something being sent back to the user. Not all hits will send data, such as 404-Not Found requests and requests for pages that are already in the browsers cache.
Additional information: Some requests made to the server, require that the server then send something back to the requesting client, such as a html page or graphic image. When this happens, it is considered a "file" and the files total is incremented. The relationship between "hits" and "files" can be thought of as "incoming requests" and "outgoing responses".
. Sites is the number of unique IP addresses/hostnames that made requests to the server. Care should be taken when using this metric for anything other than that. Many users can appear to come from a single site, and they can also appear to come from many IP addresses so it should be used simply as a rough guage as to the number of visitors to the server.
Additional information: Each request made to the server comes from a unique "site", which can be referenced by a name or ultimately, an IP address. The "sites" number shows how many unique IP addresses made requests to the server during the reporting time period. This DOES NOT mean the number of unique individual users (real people) that visited, which is impossible to determine using just logs and the HTTP protocol (however, this number might be about as close as you will get).
. Visits occur when some remote site makes a request for a page on the server for the first time. As long as the same site keeps making requests within a given timeout period, they will all be considered part of the same Visit. If the site makes a request to the server, and the length of time since the last request is greater than the specified timeout period (30 minutes), a new Visit is started and counted, and the sequence repeats. Since only pages will trigger a visit, remotes sites that link to graphic and other non- page URLs will not be counted in the visit totals, reducing the number of false visits.
Additional information: Whenever a request is made to the server from a given IP address (site), the amount of time since a previous request by the address is calculated (if any). If the time difference is greater than a pre-configured "visit timeout" value (or has never made a request before), it is considered a "new visit", and this total is incremented (both for the site, and the IP address). The timeout value is 30 minutes, so if a user visits the site at 1:00 in the afternoon, and then returns at 3:00, two visits would be registered.
. Pages are those URLs that would be considered the actual page being requested, and not all of the individual items that make it up (such as graphics and audio clips). Some people call this metric page views or page impressions, and defaults to any URL that has an extension of .htm, .html or .cgi.
Additional information: Pages are, well, pages! Generally, any HTML document, or anything that generates an HTML document, would be considered a page. This does not include the other stuff that goes into a document, such as graphic images, audio clips, etc... This number represents the number of "pages" requested only, and does not include the other "stuff" that is in the page. What actually constitutes a "page" can vary from server to server. The default action is to treat anything with the extension ".htm", ".html" or ".cgi" as a page. Some people consider this number as the number of "pure" hits. Some other programs (and people :) refer to this as "Pageviews".
. KB is 1024 bytes (1 Kilobyte). Used to show the amount of data that was transfered between the server and the remote machine, based on the data found in the server log.
Additional information: The KBytes (kilobytes) value shows the amount of data, in KB, that was sent out by the server during the specified reporting period. This value is generated directly from the log file, so it is up to the web server to produce accurate numbers in the logs (some web servers do stupid things when it comes to reporting the number of bytes). In general, this should be a fairly accurate representation of the amount of outgoing traffic the server had, regardless of the web servers reporting quirks.
. Top Entry and Exit Pages. The Top Entry and Exit tables give a rough estimate of what URL's are used to enter the site, and what the last pages viewed are. Because of limitations in the HTTP protocol, log rotations, etc... this number should be considered a good "rough guess" of the actual numbers, however will give a good indication of the overall trend in where users come into, and exit, the site.
