Hi, Santosh;
   Top of mind, if you have control of the backend response object you
Have the HTTP status code from the backend more accurately reflect
typical HTTP status codes (4xx would be better than 5xx in "OK" scenarios).
Add a response header indicating "OK" and log that (mod_log_config using
%{headername}o). Then anything without that header could be treated as
an error.

Otherwise, I am unaware of a way to interrogate the response object for
content and log differently.
