Due to the nature of my application, my server is getting bombarded with requests the majority of which are non-generic. Out of a ~30MB access.log per day only about 1MB represents real users. This has led me to the decision to disable the access logs altogether.
I would still however like to know at least how many requests Apache is serving daily. Is it possible to log only the number of requests served without any additional information?
I thought about using a custom log format with a single character and then count the lines but that'd be kind of hacky, decided to ask if there is a cleaner solution.
