Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache access logs
Date Tue, 22 May 2012 17:49:32 GMT
Hi All,

Can someone please provide any insight on the problem? Looks like I am
getting so many different patterns in IP field in ssl access logs -

-c=,\vJ\xf3\xa6\xe1=N)f\xbe\xa8; - - [15/Apr/2012:10:28:36 -0400] "GET
xxx HTTP/1.1" 304 -
-Alive - - [15/Apr/2012:20:18:48 -0400] "GET xxx HTTP/1.1" 200 1223
-:\xe0pXPCj\xd6\xdf,\xcd\xd3\x01>\b - user [17/Apr/2012:16:17:58
-0400] "GET xxx HTTP/1.1" 304 -
-Alive - 501358569 [18/Apr/2012:13:21:51 -0400] "GET xxx HTTP/1.1" 200 94991
-127e-4f8f0b1f-001c-2dec3d85 - user [18/Apr/2012:14:42:39 -0400] "GET
xxx HTTP/1.1" 304 -

See the first column. I am not sure what's causing such entries to
present in the logs. Also, such entries present only in ssl access log
and not the port 80 access logs. (this instance is listening on both
port 80 & 443)
