Stone Steps Webalizer Performance

Stone Steps Webalizer running with a minimum set of group/hide filters, enabled GeoIP and disabled DNS resolver on a 3GHz Core 2 ™ Quad with 4GB of RAM can process 122161 log records per second. Adding dozens of filters, using robot processing and user agent name mangling will reduce processing speed to about 80000 records per second on the same system.
