These logs come from the
Music Machines web site at
Hyperreal. They have been anonymized (stripped of all
information about users except for their succession of accesses
to the site).

This data were used in our own research
and we are making it available to the research community. Please

Each file contains all accesses to Music Machines for a single day.
The accesses are organized into paths. Each path is the series
of URLs requested from a particular machine. Note that we do not
distinguish among multiple users coming from the same source.
We have, however, disabled caching of pages at the site so that
every page must be requested, even when revisited.
A typical path will appear as below. The first line contains the
originating machine (converted to unique numbers for the sake of
anonymity). Each succeeding line corresponds to one URL requested
from that machine. Each request contains the originating machine
(O), the time of the request (T), the URL requested (U), and
the referring URL (R). Fields are separated by "||".

Files are named m.YYMMDD.paths, where YYMMDD represents the date. In our
own experiment, we trained on one month of data and tested on another ten
days. We present logs from September and October 1997, in one ZIP file
