I get a bunch of these

apache-error: fin|success

errors in my apache error logs.

I cannot figure out which service or module is spitting out these messages.

It does not seem to affect anything. I am just curious where it's coming from. Does anyone know?

I am running a Rails apps with Passenger.

Thanks in advance.

could you provide any further details regarding the error log – jyotiprakash Jan 2 '13 at 6:10
Honestly, not really. It's just a standard apache error log, and every once in a while, I'll see a new line with "fin|success".. That's it. Nothing else on that line. No timestamp, nothing. – vinhboy Jan 2 '13 at 7:53
Check your application. – Michael Hampton Jan 2 '13 at 15:09

FINALLY! figured it out on accident. It's a message left by the PDF maker I am using -- princexml.
