These two traces contain two week's worth of all HTTP requests to the
ClarkNet WWW server. ClarkNet is a full Internet access provider for
the Metro Baltimore-Washington DC area.
The logs are an ASCII file with one line per request, with the following
- host making the request. A hostname when possible, otherwise
the Internet address if the name could not be looked up.
- timestamp in the format "DAY MON DD HH:MM:SS YYYY", where
DAY is the day of the week, MON is the name of the month,
DD is the day of the month, HH:MM:SS
is the time of day using a 24-hour clock, and YYYY is the year.
The timezone is -0400.
- request given in quotes.
- HTTP reply code.
- bytes in the reply.
The first log was collected from 00:00:00 August 28, 1995 through
23:59:59 September 3, 1995, a total of 7 days. The second log was
collected from 00:00:00 September 4, 1995 through 23:59:59 September
10, 1995, a total of 7 days. In this two week period there were
3,328,587 requests. Timestamps have 1 second resolution.
The logs fully preserve the originating host and HTTP request.
Please do not however attempt any analysis beyond general traffic patterns.
