Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Administrator's Configuration File Reference


The flex-log function records request-specific data in a flexible log format. It can also record requests in the common log format. There is a log analyzer, flexanlg, in the /bin directory for Web Server. There are also a number of free statistics generators for the common log format.

Specify the log format using the format subelement of the access-log element in server.xml. For more information, see access-log. For more information on the log format, see Appendix C, Using the Custom Log File Format.


The following table describes parameters for the flex-log function.

Table 7–105 flex-log Parameters




(Optional) Specifies the name of a log file. The name must previously been defined by an access-log element in server.xml. If no name is given, the entry is recorded in the default log file.


(Optional) Instructs the server to log the IP address of the remote client rather than looking up and logging the DNS name. This improves performance if DNS is turned off. The value of iponly has no significance, as long as it exists; you may use iponly=1.


(Optional) Common to all obj.conf functions. Adds a bucket to monitor performance. For more information, see The bucket Parameter.
