WebSphere Portal supports two types of analytics. There is an Active Site Analytics and Server Side Analytics which sometimes is known as Passive Site Analytics. Server side site analytics uses log files that are created by Webservers for reporting Web requests that are sent to the server. The portal server also creates log files that can measure sessions, users, pages, and portlets based on how the the site-analytics reporting engine is configured in the resource environment provider called"WP_SiteAnalyzerLogService" in the WebSphere Administration console. Detail information on both active site analytics and passive site analytics for WebSphere Portal can be found in the following article: Site analytic support in IBM WebSphere Portal 6.1.5 . Just be careful on how many loggers you enable. They have a performance impact 3% to 10% and you need an archive strategy because the logs files fill up very quickly.
