I'm glad to announce the draft specification of LOGML (Log Markup Language) 
and Schema at: http://www.cs.rpi.edu/~puninj/LOGML/


Log Markup Language (LOGML) is an XML 1.0 application designed to describe 
log reports of web servers. Web-data mining is one of the current hot topics 
in computer science. Mining data that has been collected from web server 
logfiles, is not only  useful for studying customer choices, but also helps 
in organizing web pages. This is accomplished by knowing which web pages are 
most frequently accessed by the web surfers. The structure of a web site is 
represented as a web graph (see the XGMML draft specification 
http://www.cs.rpi.edu/~puninj/XGMML/ ). In mining the data from the log 
statistics, we use the web graph in annotating the log information. Further 
we give summary reports, comprising of information such as client sites, 
types of browsers and the usage time statistics. We also gather the client 
activity in a web site as a subgraph of the web site graph. This subgraph 
can be used to get better understanding of general user activity in the web 

In LOGML, we create a new XML vocabulary to structurally express the contents
of the logfile information. 


We provide with a LOGML dtd and LOGML Schema (based on XML Schema W3C 
Recommendation 2 May 2001). Software will be available pretty soon.

Questions and comments are welcome.
