Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49926] New: New option for mod_log_forensics or mod_log_config
Date Tue, 14 Sep 2010 12:26:04 GMT

           Summary: New option for mod_log_forensics or mod_log_config
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_log_forensic

I have a suggestion for the developers of Apache related to mod_log_config
or mod_log_forensics:

1)- To allow mod_log_config to write the log file with a first log entry with
basic information about the request before it's processed further (that is,
after receiving the headers). The current logging format would be written after
the request is processed. A unique "log ID", just like the "forensic ID",
should be available on both entries.

2)- Or to allow mod_log_forensic to be configured not to write all headers to
disk, or not to write headers at all.

I donĀ“t want to miss information about any request. Its important to identify
and account for all incoming requests, no matter if they fail or succeed. Since
the main purpose here it to account for all the requests and not only trace
crash events, the current header information on mod_log_forensicis would not be
necessary. This leads to a small log forensics file and less I/O on the server.

If I need more information or if i need to trace crash events, then
mod_log_forensics would be activated with the all header option.
