mod_logio in Plesk 8.3

    Hi There,

    We have been doing some traffic analysis and find that many of our users are using download accelerators. The data that Apache logs into the access_log contain the number of bytes that the user requested instead of the number of bytes actually transferred. The end result is the number of bytes the user transfers is over stated by a factor of 10 or more.

    The Apache Team created mod_logio that logs the actual number of bytes transferred, both input and output, in a format specified by the user. This function addresses the issue for Apache 2 users. This link points to a very short and sweet article about the problem and solution:


    How can we add this function to a Plesk 8.3.x server? The source code for this function is available on the Apache website here:


    I am concerned about using the standard Apache procedure for installing mod_logio as I am not sure what the side effects might be to Plesk. There are other references to this issue in the forum but I don’t see a solution. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Greg

    Good news, mod_logio comes with major distributions of linux now. Its in the httpd package by default on centos/rhel 4/5, and fedora 4/5/6/7/8/9

    Thanks for the feedback Turtle! This means that mod_logio.so should be on the box (as it is with my server). Now all we need to do to start using mod_logio is to edit the hpptd.conf using the instructions in the hyperlink in my original append. This is what I did and it seems to be working well.

    Thanks! Greg
