Subject Re: [users@httpd] Request for Log samples

Thanks for the reply.

The rule sets are not for our environment per se.  We create the rules 
and signatures that go onto the NitroSecurity SIEM products.  These 
products then are placed on customers' networks which helps keep their 
systems secure.

All the apache installations that we have in house are test 
installations that do not see much traffic.  What we are looking for are 
log files as close to real world log samples as possible so that the 
rule-set will cover a wide range of events that our customers may encounter.

I understand that there may be sensitive information contained in the 
error and access logs.  I was not expecting these people would send me 
their logs.  I was just writing to see if anyone has any logs they 
wouldn't mind sharing with me so that I might create a more robust set 
of rules.
