Wusage 7.1 Manual

directories Option

To reach this option in the configuration file editor, follow these steps:

1. Edit Configuration
2. Configure Reports...
3. Top Directories Report...
4. Chart Documents by Directory

If you prefer to manually edit your configuration files, use the following syntax for this option:

directories on
directories nopie
directories off


If turned on, the Chart Documents by Directory (directories) option indicates that wusage should display a report which breaks down accesses to the server by subdirectory. If the Chart Documents by Directory (directories) option is set to nopie, no pie chart will be generated. This option is useful to determine which directories on your server are most popular. The Chart Documents by Directory (directories) option defaults to on.

Since the directories report can be quite large, it is opened in a separate web browser window. Keep that window open to avoid reformatting the report each time you wish to refer to it. Directories are distinguished from regular files by square brackets in the report.

Since there can be many, many files on a web server, the directories option normally only descends to the second level, producing a report of manageable size. However, you can set the program to descend as far as you like using the How Many Levels Deep (Directory Depth)? (directorydepth) option.

You can also limit the number of items shown at each level using the How Many Items at Each Level? (topdirectories) option.
