How do you build your own tracker?

So, I was wondering what would it take to build a very basic affiliate tracker?

Based on my limited exposure:
  • Campaign link creation/redirection
  • Parsing postback data (extract revenue and campaign id)
  • Extracting metrics from server logs (IP lookups, OS, Browser, etc.)
  • Graphing and analysis tools for the data extracted

The fancy stuff:
  • Balancing link redirection
  • Automated optimization (rule-based)
  • Integration with various third-party APIs

Really fancy stuff:
  • AI/Machine learning for campaign optimization
  • Landing page creator and automated A/B testing
  • Make coffee during negative ROI and serve beer when you hit positive ROI
