So, Perl will give me what the HTTPD won't -- I love Perl! So how might I best achieve the same simultaneously within my HTTPd logs?

Use Perl Glue! DO NOT resolve logs with your httpd. <- Period. Use File::Tail to give your logfile a Perl API so you can watch it in realtime from your own program. Parse each line, capture the IP, resolve it and print whatever you want:

use strict; use feature qw(say); use Socket; use File::Tail; my $file = File::Tail->new("/some/log/file"); my $line; while (defined($line = $file->read)) { if ($line =~ /^DATE (IP) (WHATEVER)/) { my $remote_ip = $1; my $whatever = $2; my $remote_host = gethostbyaddr(inet_aton($remote_ip),AF_INET); say join "\t", qw/$remote_ip $remote_host $whatever/; } }

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.
