With the number of Internet users and applications continues to grow, it becomes increasingly important to understand the users' behavior character for efficient network management and security monitoring. Web is one of the most popular applications, which can help users to obtain anything they want. In this paper, the authors propose a new framework to measure and monitor users' web access behavior character. Firstly, web services are divided into 12 types according to the content they provide. As user like to access different web services at different time instants, they proposed the behavior spectrum to describe the users' access character in an easily understandable way.
