These two traces contain two month's worth of all HTTP requests to the
NASA Kennedy Space Center WWW server in Florida.
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 July 1, 1995 through
23:59:59 July 31, 1995, a total of 31 days. The second log was
collected from 00:00:00 August 1, 1995 through 23:59:59 Agust 31, 1995,
a total of 7 days. In this two week period there were
3,461,612 requests. Timestamps have 1 second resolution. Note that
from 01/Aug/1995:14:52:01 until 03/Aug/1995:04:36:13 there are no accesses
recorded, as the Web server was shut down, due to Hurricane Erin.
The logs fully preserve the originating host and HTTP request.
Please do not however attempt any analysis beyond general traffic patterns.

Computer Systems, Philadelphia, PA,
