Subject Re: [users@httpd] preventing "self" entries in access log?
Date Thu, 03 May 2007 22:55:44 GMT

Yep, in lieu of an automated "inline" way to do it, I'll just have to 
strip them out by hand (or grow a mental blindspot to them :-).  Since 
the IP and hostname does vary every time the DHCP lease expires, it 
means there's no backend way at all I could automate it.  The only means 
of automation would be by comparing the server IP to the requesting IP 
at the time of the request, and rejecting any that match.

I just wanted to do it to eliminate needless clutter from the log and 
make it easier to scan the useful stuff.
