Generally you pre-process your log before passing it to your
analyzer. grep -v, for example, will ignore lines in a file.

It wouldn't be a good idea to filter logging within Apache
because complicated enough filtering could affect performance,
and more importantly you might later want the data that you're
filtering out. Log everything, then use tools to pull out the
information you want to look at.
