like falling off a log

An assignment for the subject: Monitor traffic and compile website traffic reports.

Write a few pages outlining which reports you would recommend from a web log analysis program for the following 3 groups: web owner, system admin & web developer.

Include some screenshots of each report and some information on how often they should be accessed; what information they are showing and why it is important to the viewer; and what problems might be indicated by the report (along with some ideas about how to solve them if they do come up)

Also include some analysis of a web site - particularly what times are the busiest and the slowest and when it might be best to schedule updates to the site.
