Subject [users@httpd] Logging ALL cookies on requests from specific IP address range?
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2012 21:09:52 GMT
Apache 2.2.6 on Solaris.

We've encountered an issue where cookies seem to be disappearing.  We think it 
has something to do with a Load Balancer the traffic is passing through.

We want to log the cookies being received to try to find out what's going on.

I tried adding the following to my configuration to try to see if I *could* 
capture all the cookies.

LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b "%{the-cookie-name}C\"" cookies

CustomLog           cookies.log cookies

What's showing up in this log file is (<ip> & <tstamp> to save wrapping of
line) :

<ip> - - [<tstamp>] "GET /images/twitter.jpg HTTP/1.0" 200 1014 "-"

Does this mean the cookie named "the-cookie-name" did not appear in the request?

I tried getting ALL cookies by using %{*}C and got the same results. I'd like 
to get ALL the cookies, since we don't know *exactly* what's being dropped.
