Webalizer is one of the most popular web server administration tools in use. Free to use and distributed under the GNU General Public License, Webalizer is an open source multi-platform application that processes web server traffic logs, creating web visitor analysis reports that are viewable in any web browser.

SendThisFile recognized early on, how useful the software could be. Webalizer was written in C to be extremely fast and highly portable. A 1.6Ghz laptop, can process close to 70,000 records per second, allowing a log file with roughly 2 million hits to be analyzed in 30 seconds.

Aaron Freeman, SendThisFile CEO, strongly supports Webalizer, using it for the company's file transfer service website, "Webalizer has broad appeal because it is free, simple to use, and is extremely fast." SendThisFile has used Webalizer to assist its web traffic analysis.

Analyzing website traffic information is critical to the website's ability to retain and attract customers. Using Webalizer, SendThisFile was able to segment customers who send big files(" target="_blank ) from customers who transfer large files(" target="_blank ) enterprise-wide.

SendThisFile is extending its support to the Webalizer project by hosting the entire website for the open source project, including file downloads. "SendThisFile wants to give back to the open source community." said Freeman, "When I went looking to install Webalizer I saw the owner's request for help on his website and thought that SendThisFile might make a good fit for providing him some rack space."

In use since 1997, websites have used the Webalizer application to optimize and tune their website content. It is available worldwide in over 37 languages
