Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Comment

I would expect something that was general enough to make defining reports easy, and displaying those reports somewhat well. The actual detailed reports is something that takes time and thought to figure out, and it isn't very general, so I wouldn't expect that to come out of open source quickly; but we're great at making tools. For instance, Yet Another Advanced Logfile Analyser is an effort in that direction, defining a query language and a generic report based on that.
