Subject Re: [users@httpd] Query on access log for entry of %T
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2008 14:37:21 GMT
Sorry to say that it is not clear to me.
Suppose a client sends a request and within specific amount of time if no
response comes (here say less than 25 sec) it should timeout and it can
But my observation is that for the particular request even after 25 sec
,server responds back with 200 OK or some other response codes.Correct me if
I am wrong.
Can you please explain in more details what do you mean by individual
read/write and the entire request?What is the difference?
Do we have any configured value corresponding to %T param in the access log.
