toadi has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi,

I had to write a simple cgi that does page-access counting, seeing from where vistors came and unique hits.

PROBLEM:
my solution was a SSI executed whith each page accessed. BAD, server-load was to high(I work for a large ISP).

Are there better methods/tools to do the job??????
