In this chapter we will examine in detail a database log analysis implementation. There are two quite separate reasons for this. Firstly, it will give us a more intimate understanding of the data contained in a standard log file, and what can be achieved by importing it into a customized database to be mined for specific information. Secondly, by looking at the code being used, you will be in a position either to customize the database for your own purposes, or at least acquire a level of understanding of the principles involved in developing a new implementation using the tools and languages with which you are most familiar.
