    Higher end log analysis tool?

    I've been using awstats for some time now, and it's been great for all my smaller sites, but for the higher traffic sites I'm looking for something with a few more reports.

    Ideally I'd like to see which search terms were used on which search engines, which traffic came from adwords, and seeing a graph of unique visitors/day would be awesome.

    This is budget sensitive, so I realize my options may be few, but suggestions would be great.

    Thanks.

    Most commercial statistics management packages usually cost several hundered dollars per license, but I've seen some truely amazing things, such as daily effectiveness charts and comparisons of the different advertising methods you using.

    For a free solution I can highly recommend Analog stats and the Report Magic (rmagic) frontend to it. Report Magic basicly neatens up your reports and adds a few additional things, like 3d graphs of your month to month traffic.

    Example:


    It also gives you a summary of which search words were used to get to your site, and in combination with pathalizer and setting specific addresses for each of your advertisers (e.g. http://www.whatever.com/av.entry/google) you can easily track which percentage of visitors went onto the rest of your site etc.

    Cheers,
    Harry

    SmartStats is quite popular, and reasonably priced.

    Otherwise, Webtrends has a very complete (and very expensive) solutions.

    There are even real-time stats packages out there, most with unreal pricing
