Gathering information from the Domino web logs

We can't seem to get our R5 server configured. When opening the domlog.nsf file in the database, it only shows HTTP/GET requests for each individual request through the server. At one time, it logged into the proper format (access-log). However, it no longer does that.

We need a cumulative log but right now, all that we have are 40,000 plus daily individual HTTP requests. I have my settings in the names.nsf database: Log files Enabled, the domlog.nsf enabled and the Access Log Format set to extended common. Any suggestions?

The Domino web logs are very raw. Most shops I know that really want information from them develop custom views and filters to get the information they need.
