I see that some SAS suggestions have already come your way. Since I was feeling Perlish, I just thought I would mention that there's a Perl module available at CPAN which is designed to parse Apache weblogs, and whose code might be helpful, or at least interesting. The 'unix freeware' the consultants have is likely to be Perl code anyway.

BTW, does anyone else feel that hit counters are massively over-interpreted? How can you trust a number which can be jiggered upward just by accidentally clicking on the page multiple times? So have fun analyzing the data, but study the results with tongue firmly in cheek...
