Subject Re: excluding logging

You don't! Eventually you'll end up adding more monitoring to your 
systems and will have to come up with a better solution.

What I do is I "massage" all my log files before passing them to the web 
analysis software. That way I can exclude certain User Agents (Like HP 
Openview), other monitoring tools (like Keynote), and other ISP 
monitoring agents (by IP address). Or you can config your analysis 
software to exclude those entries.

You want to also keep the original log file too for some initial 
processing so you can accurately get quantity of traffic to your 
machines. With all the monitoring we do (and variosu types for diff 
purposes) - we proabably have 5-20% more requests than we should. Its a 
lot of overhead - but knowing with 10 minutes that something strange is 
occuring with your site makes it worth it.
