Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 Administrator's Configuration File Reference


Applicable in AddLog-class directives.

The common-log function records request-specific data in the common log format (used by most HTTP servers). There is a log analyzer in the /extras/log_anly directory for Sun Java System Web Server.

The common log must have been initialized previously by using the init-clf function. For information about rotating logs, see flex-rotate-init in the Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 NSAPI Programmer’s Guide.

There are also a number of free statistics generators for the common log format.


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

Table 4–71 common-log Parameters




(Optional) Gives the name of a log file, which must have been given as a parameter to the init-clf function in magnus.conf. If no name is given, the entry is recorded in the global 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 will improve performance if DNS is off in the magnus.conf file. The value of iponly has no significance, as long as it exists; you may use iponly=1.


(Optional) Common to all obj.conf functions.


# Log all accesses to the global log file
AddLog fn=common-log
# Log accesses from outside our subnet (198.93.5.*) to 
# nonlocallog
<Client ip="*~198.93.5.*">
AddLog fn=common-log name=nonlocallog
