Telnet in and see if a program called analog is on the system. I
understand that the commands you have might be limited to you but try:
or if that doesn't work try find.
or simply type in analog at the prompt and see what happens.
If it is not on the system, then maybe you can download it (from
freshmeat.net) and run it within your home dir. It prints log analysis in
html format, so you can view it as a webpage on your ISP. Gives you info
like daily, monthly, hourly visits, number of pages requested, served,
domains served, etc.
