You mean logging web hits? You can tell analog to do this kind of thing.

Depends how many users you're talking about. I suppose you could
grep the results of analog for the right pathname after one massive
analog run; or you could have a series of analog configuration 
files, each one specifying a different pathname and the appropriate
directory for "where to put the results".

then analog -Guser1 ; analog -Guser2 etc in cron? (Or whatever the
option is for a config file. I should admit it's two years or more
since I ran it :)) 

This would be fine for half a dozen users on a smallish site. I
suspect it would not be so fine for hundreds of users on a gigantic
heavily-visited site.
