just as a note. You are going to really confuse people if you call that a weblog. "Weblog" is the long form of the word "Blog". What you're talking about doing is parsing "server logs" or "log files" There are tons of apps designed to do specifically that. I'd recommend taking a look at analog and webalizer. Both free and opensource but not written in ruby. There is, of course, and entire industry built around writing apps to parse log files in interesting and useful ways. - kate = masukomi

Well the standard tool for web server log analysis is analog (www.analog.cx) which is available on a wide variety of platforms. You can use it with report magic (www.reportmagic.org) to create nice graphs. Nothing to do with Ruby but then your question has nothing to do with Ruby either.
