combined2dlf - convert combined log file to DLF
combined2dlf converts web server log files in the combined log format
to the www DLF. The combined (also known as extended common log format)
log format was first implemented in the NSCA httpd webs server but is
now supported in many web servers. Apache can be configured to use that
COMBINED LOG FORMAT
The combined log format is an extension to the Common Log Format; see
common2dlf(1). It adds two fields to the end of the line:
The content of the Referer request’s header. This usually reflects
the page where the user was before that request.
The content of the User-Agent request’s header. This usually
reflects the browser that the user is using.
Log example :
127.0.01 - - [11/03/2001 12:12:01 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 513 "-" "Mozilla/5.0"
dsl1.myprovider.com - francis [11/03/2001 12:14:01 -0400] "GET /secret/ HTTP/1.0" 200 1256 "http://www.example.com/index.html" "Mozilla/5.0"
To process a log as produced in the combined logformat:
$ combined2dlf < combined.log
combined2dlf will be rarely used on its own, but is more likely called
$ lr_log2report combined < /var/log/httpd/combined.log
