Request Logging

HTTP requests logs for Jetty can be enabled by uncommenting the following snippet in etc/jetty.xml:

<!-- NCSA Request Logging
 <Item>
     <New id="RequestLog" class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.handler.RequestLogHandler">
       <Set name="requestLog">
         <New id="RequestLogImpl" class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.NCSARequestLog">
           <Arg>logs/jetty-requests-yyyy_mm_dd.log</Arg>
           <Set name="retainDays">90</Set>
           <Set name="append">true</Set>
           <Set name="extended">true</Set>
           <Set name="logTimeZone">US/Central</Set>
         </New>
       </Set>
     </New>
 </Item>
-->
If you do not have a jetty.xml in the etc directory, you can start by copying the example from etc/examples/jetty.xml.

If you would like the include the usernames associated with the requests in the log file, you must also uncomment the following snippet in jetty-webapps/opennms/WEB-INF/web.xml:

<!-- Enable this filter mapping when using NCSA request logging
<filter-mapping>
  <filter-name>jettyUserIdentityFilter</filter-name>
  <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
</filter-mapping>
-->

After restarting Meridian, requests logs of the following form should be available in logs/jetty-requests-*.log:
