Is it possible to see the content-type of a response to a request in Nginx's log file? At the moment, this is what I see for the request in question: - - [23/Nov/2012:10:17:19 -0500] "GET /fonts/cantarell-bold-webfont.eot? HTTP/1.1" 200 22679 "https://www.example.com/blah/doc" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.2; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET4.0C)"

According to the official nginx documentation, you can use $sent_http_content_type in your log_format statement :

log_format myCustomFormatTemplate '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local]  '
    '"$request" $status $sent_http_content_type $body_bytes_sent '
    '"$http_referer" "$http_user_agent"';
