Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1278) Add Apache httpd-style common log access logging.
Date Mon, 12 Sep 2011 18:07:09 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-1278:

I would be quite in favor of adding this with a bit of an extension after we branch 1.2. Specifically
I'd like to see access logs in separate files from error logs with each having independent
levels (well, access with an on/off, and verbosity for error logs). The only gotchya is that
it means we need to look at adding nonce values to match up between the two files. The nonce
patch isn't overly difficult if people are interested.

> This module introduces a new log file couch_access.log in the spirit of 
> Apache httpd's access.log.
> The log format is specified here:
> The module defaults to the more commonly used `extended` format,
> but can be configured to use the standard log format as well.
> This is a new module rather than an extension to the couch_log
> module to allow easy addition. Ideally, this will be a plugin in the future.
> A note for chunked responses, the response body length reported is
> "chunked" rather than the number of bytes. The case is unspecified
> in the format description. Maybe the fix is keeping track of bytes
> sent in a chunked response, but I didn't want to make the first stab
> at this more complicated that it has to be. I'm happy to adjust.
> See the full diff here:
> I'm not proposing this to be added to 1.1.x, but if anybody wants it, there's a patch
> (The only difference is the specification of the couch_access_log module on startup,
as that
> moved from couch_server_sup.erl to couch_primary_services.erl)
