Don't you just love lists???

Well here are some statistics from the CSC gopher for you information.
I use the gla utility to produce this report. 

I would be interested to know what is happening at other Bio-Gophers,
since I have no indication if our gopher is over-active or under-active, or 
whether the user profile... predominately national, is an exception rather
than the rule.

Steps in producing the report.

	1) grep BioBox /tmp/gopher.log > BioBox.stat
	   Will produce a file with all the references to BioBox in it
	2) /usr/local/etc/gla.pl < BioBox.stat > bionaut.stat
	   Will then make an analysis of the calls to BioBox and put
	   it into bionaut.stat

Some general commets. The overall statistics for a one month period shows
that we have had 11604 logins from 687 domains. It would appear that
the main users are Finns and we do not have so much traffic from abroad.
The usage of BioBox amounts to 10% of the total useage.

                    Total calls: 11604

Here is the breakdown for BioBox, which gives the sites which use BioBox
on a daily basis. That is to say 30 calls per month. The Finnish sites
account for 53.5% of the traffic, and the rest of the world accounts for
46.5% France, Germany, UK, Canada USA and Estonia seem to be the "power users"
All in all there was 239 different domains called into BioBox. So it would
appear that there are many tourists in gopherspace.

It would be nice to know what services people use once they are inside 
BioBox so that we could tailor the services to meet their needs. 

The main areas of interest are.

	1) Getting sequences over the net
	2) Getting software over the net
	3) Looking what other bio-resources have to offer.
	4) Browsing through WAIS sources related to biology.
	5) Finding people on the net
	6) Gaining access to libraries
	7) Reading Bionet Newsgroups.

BTW...  rob.gif was retrieved more times than rob1.gif It certainly is
a b/w world ;-) And for all who asked who Rob is, he's the one in the
