Subject Re: A request for multiple access logs for university research
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2002 01:52:25 GMT
create an <img> link on the first page pointing to an "accounting"
server with fully qualified url. this server needs to process the
referer field and you are all set. distributing logs is a quite painful
process, especially with heavily loaded mirrors due to the large amounts
of log files. i personally jeep a backlog of 3(!) days access_logs and 1
week error_logs after shoving the access_logs through a statistics
