Logging: iPlanet


This article provides a brief overview of how to configure logging for an iPlanet webserver to facilitate proper processing and reporting for Urchin.

Use "Netscape" type for Log Source setting.

There is a set of minimally required fields necessary for Urchin to produce reports. They are:

  • date
  • time
  • hostname or ip address of requesting system
  • request (i.e. what document did the requesting system ask from your webserver)
  • status code generated by request (numeric)
  • bytes (bytes transferred from server to client)
In addition, for the most complete reporting you need the following fields:
  • referral
  • user-agent
  • cookies (if the Urchin Traffic Monitor is installed on your site)
