Log analysis tools

I submitted a tool called CIFSSTAT which does some log file analysis. 
It does not have a web interface, nor will it provide information about
the number of clients who have connected.  However, it does provide
statistics about the SMB calls found in the log file as well as the read
and write data sizes.  I think CIFSSTAT would be a good starting point
to create a more thorough tool from (which is why I submitted the tool
in the first place).

Since submitting the tool I haven't seen any feedback on it.  I
submitted it to samba-patches and samba-technical back on July 6th.  If
you need me to re-post the tool let me know and I can do that.
