    Question Bandwidth Monitor

    I am trying to build a bandwidth monitoring program. The goal is for the program to read different logs from various sites that I host and read how much bandwidth they use a month. I am looking for ideas on where to start or good reference sites to visit. If anyone could help me that would be great. Thank you

    @Salem
    It's much better for extracting and manipulating data from log files.
    Do you mean its faster in executing-time or is it just easier to write a program that handle logs in Perl then in C ?

    Because i might start looking into perl some time when im bored...
    Just that i know what can be done in Perl and what is suited better for C.

    Greetings,

    Ganglylamb.

    The regular expressions are what really makes perl great for log files analysis. I use several perl scripts to generate stats from my Apache logs.

    Thx Salem and Adrianxw (@Adrianxw: the tutorials on your site are very good ), now i've got an "image" what Perl is capable of.
