Clogger 0.0.1

= Clogger - configurable request logging for Rack

== DESCRIPTION

Clogger is Rack middleware for logging HTTP requests. The log format
is customizable so you can specify exactly which fields to log.

== FEATURES

  • highly customizable with easy-to-read nginx-like log format variables.

  • pre-defines Apache Common Log Format, Apache Combined Log Format and
    Rack::CommonLogger (as distributed by Rack 1.0) formats.

  • Untrusted values are escaped (all HTTP headers, request URI
    components)
    to make life easier for HTTP log parsers. The following bytes are
    escaped:

    ’ (single quote)
    " (double quote)
    all bytes in the range of \x00-\x1f

== SYNOPSIS

Clogger may be loaded as Rack middleware in your config.ru:

require “clogger”
use Clogger,
:format => Clogger::Format::Combined,
:logger => File.open("/path/to/log", “ab”)
run YourApplication.new

If you’re using Rails 2.3.x or later, in your config/environment.rb
somewhere inside the “Rails::Initializer.run do |config|” block:

config.middleware.use ‘Clogger’,
:format => Clogger::Format::Combined,
:logger => File.open("/path/to/log", “ab”)

== VARIABLES

  • $http_* - HTTP request headers (e.g. $http_user_agent)
  • $sent_http_* - HTTP response headers (e.g. $sent_http_content_length)
  • $cookie_* - HTTP request cookie (e.g. $cookie_session_id)
    Rack::Request#cookies must have been used by the underlying
    application
    to parse the cookies into a hash.
  • $request_method - the HTTP request method (e.g. GET, POST, HEAD, …)
  • $path_info - path component requested (e.g. /index.html)
  • $query_string - request query string (not including leading “?”)
  • $request_uri - the URI requested ($path_info?$query_string)
  • $request - the first line of the HTTP request
    ($request_method $request_uri $http_version)
  • $request_time, $request_time{PRECISION} - time taken for request
    (including response body iteration). PRECISION defaults to 3
    (milliseconds) if not specified but may be specified 0(seconds) to
    6(microseconds).
  • $time_local, $time_local{FORMAT} - current local time, FORMAT defaults
    to
    “%d/%b/%Y:%H:%M:%S %z” but accepts any strftime(3)-compatible format
  • $time_utc, $time_utc{FORMAT} - like $time_local, except with UTC
  • $usec - current time in seconds.microseconds since the Epoch
  • $msec - current time in seconds.milliseconds since the Epoch
  • $body_bytes_sent - bytes in the response body (Apache: %B)
  • $response_length - body_bytes_sent, except “-” instead of “0” (Apache:
    %b)
  • $remote_user - HTTP-authenticated user
  • $remote_addr - IP of the requesting client socket
  • $ip - X-Forwarded-For request header if available, $remote_addr if not
  • $pid - process ID of the current process
  • $e{Thread.current} - Thread processing the request
  • $e{Actor.current} - Actor processing the request (Revactor or
    Rubinius)

== REQUIREMENTS

  • Ruby, Rack

== DEVELOPMENT

The latest development happens in git and is published to the following:

git://rubyforge.org/clogger.git
git://git.bogomips.org/mirrors/clogger.git

You may also browse and download snapshot tarballs:

The mailing list (see below) is central for coordination and
development. Patches should always be sent inline
(git format-patch -M + git send-email) so we can reply to them inline.

== CONTACT

All feedback (bug reports, user/development dicussion, patches, pull
requests) go to the mailing list.

Do not send HTML mail or attachments. Do not top post.

== INSTALL

For all Rubygems users:

gem install clogger

If you’re using MRI 1.8/1.9 and have a build environment, you can also
try:

gem install clogger_ext

If you do not use Rubygems, you may also use setup.rb from tarballs from
the Rubyforge project page:
