"Perhaps stating your overall objective would be handy here to get more appropriate feedback"

Hmm... judging by your answer; I do indeed need to better define my objective -- Sorry. :-(

What I'm hoping to ultimately achieve, is to have the current logging the HTTPd provides, return (resolve) the connecting IP addresses it currently dumps to the log(s). Maybe an example would be prudent here: - [12/Jun/2018:12:32:26 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1. +1" 200 3306 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKi +t/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/61.0.3163.100 Safari/537.36"
When what I'd really like to see, is the following: - [12/Jun/2018:12:32:26 - +0700] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 3306 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Wi +n64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/61.0.3163.100 + Safari/537.36"
Seems that this should be possible. I could simply:
#!/bin/sh - cat /var/log/ | awk '{ print $1; }' | ...
or some such to feed the logs to a resolver. But I'm ideally looking for a way to process the log(s) (connections) in "real time". So that the logs have the correct access times. I can imagine filtering , or piping it. But am not sure if they're the only/best solutions. So here I ask. :-)

Thanks, stevieb, for taking the time to respond!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
