Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45788] New: mod_log_forensic output shouldn't be buffered when piped to filter
Date Fri, 12 Sep 2008 05:27:48 GMT

           Summary: mod_log_forensic output shouldn't be buffered when piped
                    to filter
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.3-HEAD

        OS/Version: All

          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_log_forensic

I need to do some network tests which require me to know exactly when any given
HTTP request starts and ends. I think mod_log_forensic could give me what I
need, if only there were time stamps in the forensic log data.

I tried piping the forensic log output to a filter program that prepended time
stamps to each line of log data, but this didn't work because the log data was
apparently being stdio-buffered as it left mod_log_forensic.  I can't think of
any reason for buffering of the forensic log output as it's being piped into a
filter, and I'd like to request that this buffering be turned off so that each
line of log data goes immediately to the filter program.

Better yet, I'd like to propose that mod_log_forensic itself should be enhanced
to include its own high-precision time stamps -- though I realize there might
be resistance to doing this out of concerns for backward compatibility of the
