I am trying to clean out some of the log clutter from my machines and am starting by removing requests that are generated from the server themselves. I have cache warmers running around the clock and I don't want these polluting the logs.
I was able to get apache to stop logging local requests by adding a
dontlog for the local IP:
SetEnvIf Remote_Addr "RE\.DA\.CT\.ED" dontlog CustomLog "|logger -p local3.info -t http" combined env=!dontlog
and now I am looking for something similar to put in a configuration for the Haproxy log. How can I prevent
127.0.0.1 requests from writing to the Haproxy log?
I use the excellent loggly service to pull out logs in the cloud, but I am seeing tons of logs like this:
2011 Feb 15 06:09:42.000 [REDACTED] http: RE.DA.CT.ED - - [15/Feb/2011:06:09:42 -0500] "HEAD /search/Nevad/predictive/txt HTTP/1.0" 200 - "-" "Wget/1.10.2 (Red Hat modified)" 2011 Feb 15 06:09:42.000 127.0.0.1 haproxy: 127.0.0.1:58408 [15/Feb/2011:06:09:42] www i-5dd7a331.0 0/0/0/8/8 200 210 - - --NI 0/0/0 0/0 "HEAD /search/Nevad/predictive/txt HTTP/1.1"
and I want them gone. This question focuses on how to remove that
haproxy log line from writing to the server side log in the first place.
