I had the same problem with pwebstats, so I have modified the program analog
(, a very performing analyzing
tools for httpd server logs, to create a analyzing tools for squid.
Its name is prostat and you can get it at

You can see examples of what it does at
It can generate english version of the pages if you put "LANG EN" in the
configuration file (if it's not good english, say it to me).

For people who use pwebstats, prostat can generate a cumulative page like
pwebstat and it use the same type of file than pwebstats for that (proxy.db).
So you can use your current proxy.db file for prostat if you rename the files
generated by pwebstats and move them at the right directory.

Sorry but the documentation is very poor at this time.
