Hi folks-

This is my first post to any MySQL lists, so be gentle.  If I'm posting 
SQL queries to the wrong forum, please direct me to the proper 

Anyways, I have a simple schema that stores some IP accounting data.  
I'm attempting to extract the data, grouping by the service type 
("label"), and also grouping by each 24-hour window/day from the 
datetime column ("timestamp").  I'm not sure how to accomplish this 
type of query, but I'm hoping someone here will help me do this in SQL 
and avoid having to do it in my Perl code.  Thanks in advance!

   id int(10) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,
   host varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',
   label varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',
   evals bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
   packets bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
   bytes bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
   date datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00',
   PRIMARY KEY  (id)

mysql> select * from stats limit 2\G;
*************************** 1. row ***************************
        id: 1
      host: test2
     label: http-inbound
