Subject Re: apache 2.0.43: %b not showing "bytes sent" but "bytes requested"
Date Fri, 11 Oct 2002 16:06:32 GMT
Being off by a little is better than being off by the whole thing... My
tests show that was Apache 1.3 behavior...  At least that way the value is
close, so if you're charging for bandwidth you're not overcharging so much,
and you can still tell if the whole file got there or not.
