Hello NGINX Dev team:
Hope you can help answer a simple question (I’ve gone through
and experimented with it and the answer seems no but hoping to get
confimration from “the” authority on it).
I need to customize the time stamp for logging access logs in certain
Looking at the log module, I see that the nginx offers only two
pre-configured formats, namely the $time_local and $time_iso8601
was looking to avoid post-processing of the written logs by changing the
log_format directive at the nginx level which would have met out needs.
This would have also provided “built-in” log-rotation that we were
to employ (given that file is opened and immediately closed) as well.
If this is the case of not RTFM (namely
http://wiki.nginx.org/HttpLogModule#log_format) then I apologies and
hopefully I can be pointed to the propriate place(s).
Thanks and have a Happy Holidays!
