I needs a replacement for Analog. Suggestions?

I want an app that can examine the raw log files in a compressed format.

I've been using Analog for nearly a decade, but it doesn't run in Lion. Time to find something new.

I prefer to run it on my desktop and not a cloud solution. I use a mac primarily.

Yes I use google analytics, but I want to see the things that google won't show you (bad inbound links, missing graphics, etc.)

Best answer: I was able to compile the source code under 10.7.2 with no errors. I posted the binary here. If you want to validate it, its SHA1 signature is: 08cea9473e0b71872f9ce9d5584d2cf325bb60ae

What is it about Analog that you don't have working on Lion? I just compiled it from the source tarball on Lion, with no errors, and while I didn't put it through a rigorous test it does seem to run just fine.

I should note that the SHA1 digest is for the tarball, not the binary (which is inside the tarball).

As others have said above, analog compiles and runs fine under Lion. You can build it by hand, or use MacPorts (which builds it cleanly, too).

One thing: if you upgraded to Lion with XCode 3.x previously installed, the essential binaries from /usr/bin are moved to /Developer/usr/bin, which is a major PITA if you don't know about it. Just get the latest Xcode, install and all will be well.

Response by poster: Thanks for the help, folks! I'm running again.

I'm used to a clickable binary, but this works.

Looks like some of the configs are a bit different from the version I was using, but I'll figure it out.
