How to count unique visitors in an nginx access.log

Mike Peters, 11-04-2009
This nifty one-liner will count the number of unique visitors in an NGinx web-server access.log file, for a given day:

grep "\[04/Nov/2009" access.log | cut -d" " -f1 | sort | uniq | wc -l

Replace 04/Nov/2009 with the date you'd like to count the number of unique visitors for.
