Description of %b parameter in logdoes not conform to reality

           Summary: Description of %b parameter in logdoes not conform to
                    reality
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jhp@csol.org


The %b parameter, as described in both docs/logs.html and
docs/mod/mod_log_config.html has a different behavior as described. The
description in the latter is:

%.. B:          Bytes sent, excluding HTTP headers.
%...b:          Bytes sent, excluding HTTP headers. In CLF format
        i.e. a '-' rather than a 0 when no bytes are sent.

But according to <a href="/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8996">Bug 8996</a>, the
result in the case of fixed length objects is the size of the object. I am not
sure what the result is for dynamic content. Quoting the resolution of the cited
bug: "Use mod_logio instead (%I and %O).  It will report the correct values.  %b
or %B have broken semantics that we will not be fixing.  Some rely on having the
%b and %B be what was intended to be written rather than what was really written
- don't ask - it was a major point of contention on the development lists."
