Data mining refers to extracting or \"Mining\" knowledge from large amounts of data. Data mining should have been more appropriately named knowledge mining from data. With the accessing of millions of web pages for business and personal transactions, huge amounts of web page access data have been stored in web servers. The existing web pattern mining systems do not provide the necessary tools and functionality to capture all stored distributed web page sequences easily. Data mining represents the process of extracting interesting and previously unknown knowledge from data.
