I thought you could check the apache logs for the filesize, but then I wasn' sure if it just reported the size of the file or the actual number of bytes transferred, so I tested it: We'll test it with the new Counter-Strike patch file: -rw-rw-r-- 1 tonyc tonyc 20465180 Mar 13 17:08 /usr/home/tonyc/public_www/csv1011.exe Now, looking at the apache logs: 192.168.1.51 - - [14/Mar/2001:12:14:34 -0600] "GET /~tonyc/csv1011.exe HTTP/1.1" 200 2949120 192.168.1.51 - - [14/Mar/2001:12:14:53 -0600] "GET /~tonyc/csv1011.exe HTTP/1.1" 206 7839744 192.168.1.51 - - [14/Mar/2001:12:17:19 -0600] "GET /~tonyc/csv1011.exe HTTP/1.1" 200 20465180 Comparing the last number to the size of the file on the disk, you can see that there were two aborted transfers and one complete. You could write a real quick and dirty Perl script to go through the logs and compare the file transferred against the total size of it. Hope that helps. -- Anthony Collen manero at yossman.com http://manero.org -- --------------------------------------- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of TheList go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
