Hi all, Not sure where to post this, here seems most appropriate.
My question is this:
Has anyone tried the “Meter” header (rfc2227), and is it an accepted HTTP1.1 extension?
We have been having huge problems with all the transparent proxies out there and would like to build a tracking mechanism to use extended (server side) logging and compare it to custom (client-side) image logging.
Theoretically client-side logs should equal server-side logs + meter reports. We have an unusually high no of internal refs. Points to those damn caches!! It would be nice to believe that our log stats are at least faintly plausible.
Forgive me for being a lazy searcher, but have you got a handy url for rfc2227? This sounds new to me. I normally use a combo of server side generated logs and cgi image calls that are not cached by browsers. That gives you nearly 100% coverage.
