Web Log Trends Analyzer provides a work-around for a "bug" in some popular commercial Log Analyzer products, which makes them unable to process multiple log files for overlapping periods of time. If you like your commercial Log Analyzer, and don't feel like upgrading just yet, this little Perl script will do the trick nicely. Simply specify a list of all your log files, and it will consolidate them into a single log file, sorted by time. The output log will work with your commercial Log Analyzer product without a hitch, allowing you to continue using it to generate reports.

Release Notes: WLTA is functionally complete. It runs on a command line, and expects a list of log files to consolidate. Output is sent to STDOUT, where it may be redirected to a file for analysis. Debug modes may be activated by setting the "DEBUG" environment variable. WLTA is designed to be very cron-friendly, so that it may run on an automated basis.
