HTTP access log
This is an additional log to what has been already available in regular server logs and keeps nothing but information regarding HTTP requests in a format used by Apache httpd. This makes it possible to use existing tools in order to parse and extract interesting information out of the logs.
The log is kept in each server’s ./logs/http_access.log file. For instance, if a server is in /opt/zato/server1, the log will be in /opt/zato/server1/http_access.log.
Here’s a sample entry and descriptions of all the default fields:
