Wusage, an application from Boutell.com that does Web log analysis on the fly, isn’t available for Mac OS X. But it might be eventually, if there’s enough interest. (There is a version for the traditional Mac operating system, as well as a variety of UNIX, Linux, and Windows versions.)
MacCentral reader and Mac user, Michael A Fuselier, wants to see Wusage come to Apple’s next generation operating system
“There are a few web log analysis programs, but none of them seem to be real-time, on the fly,” he told MacCentral. “As Mac OS X gets used more as a Web server, its important that we all try to support our platform, by getting as much of the needed software ported (or Carbonized), as quickly as possible.”
Thomas Boutell of Boutell.Com, told Fuselier that a Mac OS X version of Wusage is planned. However, he said that the main holdup is that Apple “apparently broke their version of gcc a bit — at least the version that went out with Mac OS X Server.”
“The situation on Mac OS X proper may be different,” he said in an e-mail. “We also don’t have a tremendous sense that lots of people are really needing this so far, but we’re aware it wouldn’t be too impractical.”
