Projects / Pathalizer


Pathalizer is a tool for visualizing the paths most users take when browsing a Web site. This information can be used to decide how to improve the navigation of the site, and for determining which parts are most worth improving and keeping up to date. It generates a directed, weighed graph from an Apache log, but could easily be modified to analyze any list of events.

          Release Notes: This version improves speed dramatically, adds Cygwin support, removes dependency on Perl, fixes a bug in seperation of sessions (sessions were merged where they shouldn've been merged and seperated where they shouldn't have been seperated), slightly improves the format of the configuration file, and chooses the thickness of the edges with more care.
