    HELP! Site Stats - bandwidth, monitor resolution, etc.?

    I really need some help. I am looking for a service or software that can deliver site statistics on

    1. Bandwidth
    2. Screen Resolution
    3. Color Depth

    Any suggestions?

    I have WebTrends but I would like to supplement the stats on my site's users with these additional stats.

    I know www.thecouter.com use to give you browser/color report but not sure if they still do?
    Bandwidth could only be countered from your server side. You might find a script at www.hotscripts.com that could count the bandwidth.

    I'm fairly sure www.webtrendslive free version tells you that.

    We looked into Webtrends since we already have a version. They said they don't make a software that can capture the bandwidth (connection speed) of users.

    I have seen the counter.com. Thanks for the suggestion.

    how can any tracker determine the connection that the user is using?

    btw, how the heck does web trends track your site? it doesn't appear to be anything you'd download and install on your system.

    For WebTrends, you can either install it on your box so that it can parse your logs or you can use their ASP service. With the ASP service, you add a little bit of code to your pages which connect to WebTrends' servers.

    Here is an article on some web stat product options which includes WebTrends.

    you can get some of that info through php, at least resolution and "bandwidth" if you mean what I think you mean.

    TheCounter.com doesn't offer a free service anymore. SiteMeter.com still does - I highly recommend their service, been using it for years.
