hi

i was involved in a webcast for the UK Make Poverty History event on July
2nd and have analyzed my Icecast logs using Sawmill
(http://www.sawmill.net/) which supports Icecast logs:

http://www.sawmill.net/formats/ice_cast.html

looking at the data below i have been asked what the difference is between
'Page Views' and 'Visitors' with regard to Icecast logs:

	Page 		Hits 		Page views   Visitors 	Size
1 	/mph.mp3 	14,542 	34.4 % 	14,542 		7,710 	16.12 G
2 	/mph.mp3.m3u 	11,812 	28.0 % 	11,812 		8,805 	1.07 M

from a Sawmill Manual & FAQ - www.haage-partner.net/download/
Sawmill/Sawmill7-Documentation.pdf - page views are the numbers of
'accesses to HTML pages' and 'page views correspond to hits on pages'.

from the above i can see that 'Hits' equals 'Page Views' which makes sense
- what does Icecast log as a Hit or Page View?

does this mean anything at all in Icecast terms or should i safely ignore
the number of Page Views?

regards
