SawmillLogAnalysis.png

Many organizations and individuals that have a Windows Media Streaming Server, QuickTime/Darwin Streaming Server or Real Helix Universal Server don't realize that they can actually get statistics from their content viewed from their streaming server. Individuals can use a tool called Sawmill to process the streaming server log files that come off the streaming server. Streaming Servers can process log files, which are files that can contain all the data surrounding viewing habits of those that tuned into Live or On-demand streams from your streaming server. The log files are tucked away inside of folders that sit on your Streaming Server. You can even process files from a web server if you have the log files.

What's nice about Sawmill is it runs on Mac and Windows platforms and provides all kinds of details about viewing habits. Using Sawmill you can actually go and fetch the log files using FTP to your streaming server or web server or you can locate thgem manually and pull them inside of the Sawmill application for processing.

Here's what Sawmill can help you find:

Number of viewers
Most Popular videos watched
IP addresses and domains of your viewers
Packet Loss on videos
Order of videos viewed
Length of time viewers watched and all kinds of other great stats
Viewing errors
Media players your viewers use
