ChartWorks Introduces WebSight for Monitoring and Analyzing Web Server Activity.
Provides First Real-time and Historical Analysis Tool
for ISPs and Web Masters
ChartWorks(R) Inc., the leader in online enterprise charting, today announced the availability of WebSight(tm) 1.0, a chart-centric(tm) application for real-time monitoring and historical analysis of Web server activity. WebSight enables ISPs and Web masters to quickly identify problems, track usage and spot utilization trends in a fraction of the time it takes to read and analyze lengthy tabular listings and reports.
"ChartWorks recognizes the growing need for companies to use charts to quickly access and assimilate large volumes of real-time data," said Dan Cronin, vice president of marketing, ChartWorks Inc. "This is the first of many vertical markets for which we will develop online charting tools, including help desk, enterprise resource planning, sales forecasting, sales reporting and sales force automation."
WebSight 1.0 provides real-time and historical online chart displays of the number of hits on the Web server, the number of bytes transmitted, the most commonly viewed pages and the domain names visitors link to from the Web site. WebSight automatically extracts and graphs data from the Web server access log files. Users can dynamically select and graph the data elements they wish to monitor. They can also drill down into the graphs to view trends for different time periods including days, weeks, months and years, and compare that data with other time periods to spot trends in site activity.
WebSight 1.0 was developed using the ChartWorks System(tm) to produce dynamic online charts. The ChartWorks System consists of ChartExpress(tm) for rapid chart design and the NetCharts(tm) graphic-rendering engine. The ChartWorks System is unique in its team-based approach to building, maintaining and sharing dynamically generated online charts for the enterprise. This team-oriented approach is enabled by the ChartWorks System's intuitive Chart Definition Language (CDL). CDL enables effective integration of the ChartWorks System product components and supports a distributed, team approach to chart production.
WebSight is 100% Java code and supports any Java-enabled client platform supporting JDK 1.1x. All chart applets can be viewed through any JDK 1.1 compatible Web browser including Netscape 4.0 and higher and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 and higher.
Pricing & Availability
ChartWorks WebSight 1.0 is offered at an introductory price of $295 per server with unlimited user access. WebSight 1.0 currently supports UNIX Web servers only. Support for Windows NT is planned for the near future. WebSight 1.0, NetCharts and ChartExpress are available today and can be downloaded directly from the ChartWorks site at http://www.chartworks.com.
