Subject [users@httpd] tracking user clicks thru a session id
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2005 22:16:26 GMT

I've got an app where users login, go thru pages A to B, to C, and finish
at D. I'm dumping out in each access log entry the users' SSL session ID
to identify a respective user, e.g. - - [13/Apr/2005:13:20:11 +0000] "POST /PAGEA HTTP/1.1"
70007 544 0BF4C6E30ACRA36FC6016B832697AEB1942B2154068C801ED3F9068450FE9B06 - - [13/Apr/2005:13:21:49 +0000] "POST /PAGEB HTTP/1.1"
70007 544 0BF4C6E30ACRA36FC6016B832697AEB1942B2154068C801ED3F9068450FE9B06

What I want to so is find out is how many users get to each point in the
application, basically so I can report on people getting say to the
checkout (C) but not actually purchasing (D), and the number purchasing
People can cycle thru certain pages,

i.e. login - A - B - A - B - C - D

so I don't really want to just do a "cat access.log | grep 'PAGEA' | wc -l"

Before I get into loads of Perl, does any1 know of a web analysis tool /
script that allows you to say track user clicks thru a series of
predefined pages (A, B etc) and report on where people dropped out ? They
all do lots of reports, but I can't find one that does this....
Any suggestions are appreciated.
