Analyzing Web and Streaming Server Log Files - Part 3

Analyzing Streaming Server Log Files

Analyzing streaming server log files has an added benefit because streaming server logs contain more detailed information than the information one might get from a web server. A streaming server is used to host real-time streaming videos and detailed information from each visitor can be recorded in the log files. You can find out how long certain videos were watched, the total bandwidth used for each video, click throughs for video content. Click throughs are valuable because you can see the first video viewed and the last video viewed per visitor viewing session. Click throughs also show all the video viewed in between.

Log files can also provide IP address information, geographic information, and video packet loss. If you are interested you can even drill down and get information on which videos are being viewed by some someone that might come from a specific company or organization. For example, if you resolve DNS and determine that many individuals are visiting from a certain college, you can drill down and find out which type of videos they are watching.
