    Custom web log format?


      How can I use my own log format like the following found at


      %a - Remote IP address
      %A - Local IP address
      %b - Bytes sent, excluding HTTP headers, or '-' if zero
      %B - Bytes sent, excluding HTTP headers
      %h - Remote host name (or IP address if resolveHosts is false)
      %H - Request protocol
      %l - Remote logical username from identd (always returns '-')
      %m - Request method (GET, POST, etc.)
      %p - Local port on which this request was received
      %q - Query string (prepended with a '?' if it exists)
      %r - First line of the request (method and request URI)
      %s - HTTP status code of the response
      %S - User session ID
      %t - Date and time, in Common Log Format
      %u - Remote user that was authenticated (if any), else '-'
      %U - Requested URL path
      %v - Local server name
      %D - Time taken to process the request, in millis
      %T - Time taken to process the request, in seconds

      I tried to do the following by replacing pattern="combined" with pattern="%a" in server.xml without success

       <Host name="www.my_domain.com" autoDeploy="false" deployOnStartup="false" deployXML="false">
       <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.FastCommonAccessLogValve"
       prefix="www.my_domain.com_log." suffix=".log"
       pattern="%a" directory="${jboss.server.home.dir}/log"
       resolveHosts="false" />

      I thought this would simply log the remote ip using the %a, but it seems any modification to the pattern attirbute result in reverting to the common format.

      Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
