Disable logging images or seperate image log files


#1

Hello list,

After some google search I guess this is yet discussed before. How do I:

  1. disable nginx logging image requests(no .gif|.jpg|.png logging in
    access_log)
  2. keep logging image requests, but seperate it to another
    file(main_access.log and img_access.log)
  3. disable logging requests of some pattern or log them on another file

Any examples are appreciated.

location ~* .(gif|jpg|png) {
access_log off;

}

Or if all are in a directory and it’s subdirectories:

location ^~ /images/ {
access_log off;

}

See

location ~* .(gif|jpg|png)$ {
access_log /path/to/access.log;

}

  1. disable logging requests of some pattern or log them on another file

Use a regex in “location” block. See
http://wiki.nginx.org/NginxHttpCoreModule#location.

Any examples are appreciated.
