This government computer system uses software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

Below is an example of the information collected for statistical purposes based on a standard request for a World Wide Web document:

xxx.yyy.com - - [28/Jan/1997:00:00:01 -0500] "GET /http://www.vaq130.navy.mil /news/nr012797.html HTTP/1.0" 200 16704 Mozilla 3.0/www.google.com

xxx.yyy.com (or 123.123.23.12) -- this is the host name (or IP address) associated with the requester (you as the visitor). In this case, (....com) the requester is coming from a commercial address. Depending on the requester’s method of network connection, the host name (or IP address) may or may not identify a specific computer. Connections via many Internet Service Providers assign different IP addresses for each session, so the host name identifies only the ISP. The host name (or IP address) will identify a specific computer if that computer has a fixed IP address.

[28/Jan/1997:00:00:01 -0500] -- this is the date and time of the request

"GET /http://www.vaq130.navy.mil  /news/nr012797.html HTTP/1.0" -- this is the location of the requested file on http://www.vaq130.navy.mil/

200 -- this is the status code - 200 is OK - the request was filled

16704 -- this is the size of the requested file in bytes

Mozilla 3.0 -- this identifies the type of browser software used to access the page, which indicates what design parameters to use in constructing the pages

www.google.com - this indicates the last site the person visited, which indicates how people find http://www.vaq130.navy.mil/

Requests for other types of documents use similar information.

No personally-identifying information is collected.
