Wusage and Your Spreadsheet Software

Many administrators wish to create additional reports beyond those produced by wusage. A good way to do this is to import the Wusage historical database into your spreadsheet. Fortunately, this is very straightforward.

The file database.dat, found in each of the daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual subdirectories, contains the historical data used by Wusage to generate its historical graphs. This data is stored as tab-delimited ASCII, which any spreadsheet program can open directly.

The first row contains titles identifying each of the totals you have configured using the Items to be Charted (totalsgroup) option. Each subsequent row contains the date at which the time period began, the number of days in the time period, and the amount of activity (accesses, bytes and visits) for each of your totals during that time period.

It is not recommended that you alter and save changes to the database.dat file. However, if you do, keep in mind that the file must continue to contain tab-delimited ASCII only, the number of columns should not change, and the "days" column must contain an appropriate value for the reporting frequency (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual).
