What is pisg?

pisg is an IRC statistics generator. It takes IRC logfiles and turns them into nice looking stats.

In general, you would do something like this to get it running:


What are the requirements to run pisg?

  • An IRC client or bot where pisg supports the output logfile.

  • Any operating system which Perl runs on, this includes popular OSes such as Linux, FreeBSD, Windows and Mac. You will have a hard time finding an OS where Perl isn't supported. For Windows this means that you need to download ActivePerl.

  • Optional - a system to host the statistics page 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  • Optional - a system to log the channel, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Setting up pisg for the first time

Most configuration happens through the pisg.cfg file, the file format is made to be easy to read, and easy to extend for further use. It uses an XML-like format, with elements and attributes.


Setting up a channel

An element called Channel is made for defining channels, a quick example of a channel is here:


   
    <channel="#channel">
     Logfile = "channel.log"
     Format = "mIRC"
     Maintainer = "John"
     OutputFile = "mychan.html"
    </channel>
   
   
The above will define a Channel called #channel, the logfile pisg will look for is called channel.log and the Format of the logfile will be mIRC. The Maintainer (which will be stated on the output page) is John.

That is basically it! Now, there are a lot more options that you can use for your channels, for this please refer to the reference documentation.

Also be-aware of the fact that pisg uses various images to show the time-related bars. These images are placed in the gfx/ folder and should be placed into the same directory as your outputted HTML file.


Specifying user options

User options are set with a simple XML-like syntax in the form:


   <user nick="NICK" option="VALUE">
   
Remember, the nick is always required. For example to add aliases to a nick, then you could do this:

    <user nick="Joe" alias="Joe^*">
    
The asterisk (*) means that it will match all nicks starting with 'Joe^'. So it will add all Joe^'s to 'Joe' in the stats. Another thing you can do is to add a picture to a user:

    <user nick="Ben" pic="ben_holiday.jpg">
    
If you have a larger picture of the user as well, you can make the picture on the stats page link to it:

     <user nick="Ben" pic="ben_holiday.jpg" bigpic="ben-big.jpg">
    
You can include * or ? to enable filename globbing to randomly choose one from several pictures: (see documentation for the ImageGlobPath option)

    <user nick="Ben" pic="ben_*.jpg">
    
You can also set a user's sex. The sex setting can be "f"emale, "m"ale, or "b"ot:

    <user nick="Ben" sex="m">
    
Also you can add links to URLs and e-mails:

    <user nick="Christine" link="http://www.christine.com">
    
or

    <user nick="Chris" link="chris@host.com">
    
The last thing you can do is to ignore nicks (for example bots):

    <user nick="nameofbot" ignore="y">
    
You don't have to do all this in many lines, you could just as easily do:

    <user nick="Joe" alias="Joe^away Joe^work" pic="joe.jpg" link="joe@joe.com" sex="m">
    
(Here the aliases are a space separated list of nicks, that also works! But * as a wildcard is smarter, although it is slower).


Setting global options

Many times, it will be useful to set up global options, global options are set like this:


     <set option="VALUE">
     
Any global option will be overriden by anything defined within channel elements (see the Section called Setting up a channel)

For example, to change the background color of the stats page, you could do:


     <set bgcolor="black">
     
You can set many options in a single set:

     <set lang="DE" timeoffset="+1">
     
The above will set the language on the statistics page to DE (Deutsch, German) and set the time offset to +1. All options available are mentioned in the reference documentation.


Ignoring links

It's possible to ignore links in the "Most referenced URLs" section:


    
     <link url="http://www.slashdot.org" ignore="y">
    
    


Including common settings for various channels

If you have, for example, more than one channel, where the users are the same, or you don't want to maintain more than one user file, you can use the "include" setting in the main config file:


    
     <include="/home/vetinari/pisg/users.cfg">
    
    
This will include the file /home/vetinari/pisg/users.cfg in the config at the place where the include statement is set.

Note, that you can NOT include a file from an included file!


Changing the layout of your stats page

The standard layout and colors in the outputted HTML page are made to be somewhat clean and neutral. But you have the chance to change the layout yourself.

There are a few predefined color schemes for you to use, use the ColorScheme option when using them. The colorschemes distributed with pisg are: default (which is the default), darkgalaxy, darkred, justgrey, ocean, orange_grey, pisg, softgreen.

When changing it, you need a fair knowledge of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). CSS is what most of the web uses today to define styles and layout on HTML pages. With the pisg distribution, look in the layout directory. In it resides default.css which is the file being included onto the HTML page. Open it in a text editor like vi or notepad. Then change it until you're happy with it. Be aware that you might want to look at the HiCell and HiCell2 options through pisg.cfg for changing the last two colors.

If you have created a nice stylesheet which other can take advantage of, you are encouraged to send it to the pisg mailing list so that it can be distributed with the next version of pisg.

If you want to embed the statistics into another page, use the "none" color scheme. Pisg will then omit the HTML header and write only the body part.


Running pisg

When everything is set up in the pisg configuration file (pisg.cfg), then you simply run pisg on the command-line.

Using Linux, BSD or another UNIX-like system:


    user@host:pisg-0.37$ ./pisg
    

Using Windows:


    c:\pisg> perl pisg
    

The program will run and parse the logfiles you specified in the configuration file.

If you are using Linux, BSD or another UNIX-like system and want run pisg automatically several times a day, then see the crontab file in the scripts/ directory.

For Windows, see the windows-upload-ftp.txt file with the pisg distribution, this file is also placed in the scripts/ directory.


Obtaining help and reporting bugs

If your problem could not be resolved through here, then you should send an e-mail to the pisg mailing list. You can subscribe and see more info at http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/pisg-general.

If you believe that you have found a bug, you should use the SourceForge bug tracking system.

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">
         Logfile = "channel.log"
         Format = "eggdrop"
         Maintainer = "John"
        </channel>

        <set Format="mIRC">
      
    

Description

Format is used to define the format of the logfile, pisg supports a various number of different logfiles, see the FORMATS file included with the pisg distribution. If your logfiles have the suffix .gz or .bz2, they will automatically be decompressed and read by pisg. See also Maintainer.

Default

Unset

Network

Name

Network -- the IRC network of the channel

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">
         Logfile = "channel.log"
         Format = "eggdrop"
         Network = "Undernet"
        </channel>

        <set Network="Quakenet">
      
    

Description

Network is used to set the network which the channel resides on, this name is displayed on the stats page.

Default

SomeIRCNetwork

OutputFile

Name

OutputFile -- name of the generated HTML page

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">
         Logfile = "channel.log"
         Format = "eggdrop"
         OutputFile = "mychan.html"
        </channel>

        <set OutputFile="mychan.html">
      
    

Description

OutputFile is used to define the name of the generated statistics page.

Default

index.html

OutputTag

Name

OutputTag -- tag to insert into OutputFile

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">
         LogDir = "logs/"

         OutputFile = "mychan%t.html"
         OutputTag = "-week"
        </channel>

        <set OutputTag="-week">
      
    

Description

OutputTag specifies a string that will replace occurrences of "%t" in OutputFile. This option is most useful when used as a command line switch (-t) to pisg in conjunction with NFiles (-nf). Example:


      
      $ pisg -co pisg.conf
      $ pisg -co pisg.conf -nf 8 -t -week
      
    
Leaving out the OutputTag settings from the above pisg.conf snippet, this writes both the full statistics (mychan.html) and statistics for the last week (mychan-week.html) using the same pisg config file. (Assuming that there are separate logfiles for each day.)

Default

        </channel>

        <set Logfile="foo.log">
      
    

Description

This defines the filename of the logfile to parse for the channel. If you want to parse a directory full of logfiles, you should use the LogDir option instead. Providing this option multiple times will parse multiple files in the order the statements appear. Wildcards (* ? []) will be expanded. See also LogDir and NFiles.

Default

unset

LogDir

Name

LogDir -- parse a directory full of logs

        </channel>

        <set LogDir="dailylogs/">
      
    

Description

When LogDir is defined to valid path to a directory, then pisg will run through that directory, parse all logfiles in it and create one HTML page from it. Useful with for example eggdrop logs. Providing this option multiple times will parse all the files in multiple directories in the order the statements appear. See also NFiles, LogPrefix, and LogSuffix.

Default

unset

NFiles

Name

NFiles -- parse only the last files in LogDir

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">
         Logfile = "channel.log"
         Format = "mIRC"
         Maintainer = "Benny"
        </channel>

        <set Maintainer="Benny">
      
    

Description

Maintainer is used to define the name of the maintainer of the statistics page, this can be either the person generating the stats or the bot/client doing the logging. The maintainer is displayed in the outputted stats page. This setting is also used by some log parsers where "You" is used instead of the nick in the log (e.g. "You have been kicked"). See also Format, NickTracking.

        </channel>

        <set ColorScheme="default">
      
    

Description

ColorScheme is used to define the color scheme used for the statistics page. Actually it's the CSS file being included. CSS files distributed with pisg are: darkgalaxy, darkred, default, justgrey, ocean, orange_grey, pisg, softgreen (omit the .css). The file will be included statically in the generated HTML page. If you give a file name or URL (i.e. a color scheme name with .css or a path), the file will be linked to instead. Using "none" will cause pisg to write only the body of the page; use this to include the statistics into a custom page. See also CssDir, AltColorScheme, HiCell/HiCell2.

         PageHead = "myheader.txt"
        </channel>

        <set PageHead="someheader.txt">
      
    

Description

PageHead is used to include a file in the stats page, for example an introduction text, a link to an image or a banner. The file can hold anything, it will be included raw in the stats page - so HTML should be preferred. The file will be included in the top of the page. This option is the opposite of PageFoot.

Default

none

PageFoot

Name

PageFoot -- define a file as page footer

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">

        <set PageFoot="somefooter.txt">
      
    

Description

PageFoot is used to include a file in the stats page, for example an introduction text, a link to an image or a banner. The file can hold anything, it will be included raw in the stats page - so HTML should be preferred. The file will be included in the bottom of the page. This option is the opposite of PageHead.

Default

none

LogPrefix

Name

LogPrefix -- only parse logs LogPrefixed with a user defined string

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">
         LogDir="/home/foo/eggdrop/logs/"
         Format = "eggdrop"
         LogPrefix = "logjun"
        </channel>

        <set LogPrefix="logjanuary">
      
    

Description

When using the LogDir option and you only want to use a slew of the files in it, you can have pisg choose only files which are prefixed with a special string.

Default

unset

LogSuffix

Name

LogSuffix -- Regexp to sort logfiles by format month||day||year

Synopsis


      
        <set LogSuffix="\.\d\d([A-Za-z]+)\d\d\d\d||\.(\d\d)[A-Za-z]+\d\d\d\d||\.\d\d[A-Za-z]+(\d\d\d\d)">
      
     

Description

LogSuffix is used to define the suffix of a logfile, it only works when LogDir is defined. The example in the synopsis is for the eggdrop bots default format.

Default

Unset

Silent

Name

Silent -- make pisg silent, suppress messages

Synopsis


      
        <set Silent="1">
      
    

Description

This option is useful mainly from command line when invoking pisg with --silent 1. But it can also used in the configuration file. It will suppress all standard output from pisg. Error messages will still be sent.

Default

0 (disabled)

CacheDir

Name

CacheDir -- use a cache to speed up log parsing

Synopsis


      
        <set CacheDir="pisg_cache">
        <set CacheDir="/path/to/pisg_cache">
      
    

Description

Setting this option makes pisg dump the results of log parsing into cache files. The next time pisg is run, it compares the timestamp of the log(s) with the timestamp stored in the cache file. When the log was not changed, the cached data is used. (This means that it does not work if you only have a single big logfile. Split the log at arbitrary points and use LogDir or Logfile="dir/*".)

Note that the cache files should be deleted when the pisg config file is changed since the cache data uses the old config settings. NickTracking does not work especially well with the cache when using different NFiles settings.

Default

Unset

        <set UserPics="3">
      
    

Description

UserPics allows you to configure the number of user pictures per row. Per default, one picture will be shown. Since pictures are usually higher than one line of text, this lets the table grow. With settings greater than 1, several pictures will be placed next to each other. A good setting would be UserPics=3 and pictures of size 60x60. Set UserPics to no or 0 to disable user pictures.

         Charset = "utf-8"
        </channel>

        <set Charset="iso-8859-15">
      
    

Description

The pisg stats page defines a character set in a meta tag, this can be used if your country is using a different one than the default. Pisg will also use this setting to convert the language templates from LangFile if the language defines a source charset. Note: you also have to tell your webserver to transmit the charset to the browser. With Apache, use "AddDefaultCharset off" in the server config.

Default

iso-8859-1

LogCharset

Name

LogCharset -- character set for logfiles

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">
         Logfile = "channel.log"
         Format = "xchat"
         Charset = "iso-8859-1"
         LogCharset = "utf-8"
        </channel>

        <set Charset="iso-8859-15">
        <set LogCharset="iso-8859-15">
      
    

Description

If LogCharset is set and different from Charset, pisg will convert the charset using Text::Iconv. Using this option slows down log processing.

Default

empty (no conversion)

LogCharsetFallback

Name

LogCharsetFallback -- fallback character set for logfiles

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">
         Logfile = "channel.log"
         Format = "xchat"
         Charset = "utf-8"
         LogCharset = "utf-8"
         LogCharsetFallback = "iso-8859-1"
        </channel>

        <set Charset="utf-8">
        <set LogCharset="utf-8">
        <set LogCharsetFallback="iso-8859-15">
      
    

Description

LogCharsetFallback defines a fallback charset for the LogCharset conversion. This is useful if you have mixed unicode/iso-8859-* logs. Pisg will first try the conversion from LogCharset. If that fails, LogCharsetFallback is used. Note that this only works for charsets where certain byte sequences are illegal, like UTF-8. (In short: LogCharset = utf-8, LogCharsetFallback = iso-8859-15 works, the other way round does not.)

Default

empty (no fallback conversion)

TimeOffset

Name

TimeOffset -- use a different time zone than the local machine

Synopsis


      
        <channel="#channel">

         TimeOffset = "+5"
        </channel>

        <set TimeOffset="+2">
      
    

Description

By default, pisg uses the time of the local machine to display the time of the generated stats. Sometimes when you have a shell on an external box, and it's in another country, you want to use another time. This is accomplished by the TimeOffset command.

Default

+0
