    = Clogger - configurable request logging for Rack

    * http://clogger.rubyforge.org/
    * mailto:


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


    * 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


    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")


    * $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
    * $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)


    * Ruby, Rack


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


    You may also browse and download snapshot tarballs:

    * http://clogger.rubyforge.org/git?p=clogger.git (gitweb)
    * http://git.bogomips.org/cgit/mirrors/clogger.git (cgit)

    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.

    * mailto:

    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:
