Is there a ssh command to scan log files and return the top list of the most requested files on a server ? Thank you.

Do you mean the most requested files via HTTP in the web server logs? –  Michael Oct 29 '12 at 20:30
What do you mean by "ssh command"? ssh is just a way of connecting to a remote server, it doesn't have any special commands of its own. –  Barmar Oct 29 '12 at 20:35
@Michael : Yes, this is exactly it. –  Pax Maximinus Oct 29 '12 at 21:02
@Barmar : I mean the language we use in a terminal (I thought it was called "SSH") –  Pax Maximinus Oct 29 '12 at 21:03
It's called "shell". –  Barmar Oct 29 '12 at 21:05

Look into utilizing Webalizer for that sort of info. Most linux builds already come with that pre-installed. Try rpm -q webalizer to see if it's present.
