Topic: Analog web log analyzer -- Solaris package

analog ]
This is a precompiled package of Analog for Solaris. I'm packaging it on Solaris 2.5.1 and it should work under Solaris 2.6 as well (I've confirmed that the executable doesn't dump core, but I don't have a 2.6 box I can test package installation on.) If you have anything to add, please get in touch at

Please note: this is not a gzipped tar archive, it is a gzipped package. To install it under Solaris, use:

gunzip analog-4.16-sparc-usrlocal.gz
pkgadd -d analog-4.16-sparc-usrlocal
If you aren't sure what pkgadd does, please consult the man page for it, which will explain things much more cogently than I can.

I do provide commercial support for Analog, but I don't have a whole lot of time for free handholding. If you run into problems with this package, I want to know, and I'll make it work at no cost to you, but if you want help with Analog itself, be warned: I charge by the hour. Your free-of-cost alternative is the Analog mailing list, which you can find at Stephen's Analog homepage.

  • A version for Sparc which installs to /usr/local/analog
    Finally! I have the latest version compiled and packaged. If anybody still wants to install to /etc/analog, tell me, but I'm not sure how many people really liked that. I did have one suggestion that by all rights, things should install into /opt, but since doesn't do that, I don't see why it makes much sense. Your opt device probably isn't all that big anyway -- mine isn't.
  • The same for Intel
    I still think that Solaris on Intel is an unholy union, but I now have such a box in my menagerie, and sure enough, I have reason to run Analog on it. So you get the benefit (assuming you're also strange enough to run Solaris on Intel).
