My approach isn't very interesting. Client thinks that the numbers in those
log files hold the key to being able to tell how much of a load was placed
on the server. After failing to convince him otherwise, I've embarked on the
task of getting him those numbers. Then, when the reality that the stats are
pretty much useless sets in, I'll say 'I told you so' and do a little dance.
