Glen,

My goal is to not be tied up to any particular tool but rather use a log
format acceptable by popular logfile analyzers. It was suggested to me that
I start out with something like Apache CLF (Common Log Format) and support
other formats in the future (see comments in
http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=11737). I believe that CLF
is supported both WebTrends and Analog (I still have to test). Someone on
the mailing list already tried a sample log I posted with Webalizer.

Initial implementation is very simple - CLF only. Fully customizable log
entry format will be a future enhancement. It would be nice to determine the
request size in bytes but I haven't looked into it yet - not sure if that is
even possible without a lot of overhead.

Best regards,
