Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
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.
You can also find all the rfc's @ www.w3.org all the standards. Not that everyone adheres to them. But the big boys do to a large degree, I hope. Just have to find time to read them ..LOL
I see that the HTTP1.1 rfc 2068 has been made redundent my rfc 2616.
The 2227 rfc deals with extentions to Http1.1 ... trying to deal with the caching problem.
[cisco.com...] is also a good article .. great ref material @ the bottom.
