What to ask a dev

If you need to get a developer to get you the server log data, you need to make sure they are getting you the following bits of information:

  • Host:
  • Date:
  • Page/Title:
  • Bandwidth:
  • Response Codes:
  • Referral:
  • User Agent:

This is the bare minimum needed to do any type of log Analysis. An example of what the data looks like:
