perl module to parse httpd log on C5
Looking for alternative ideas to parse the combined Apache log:
/var/log/httpd/access_log (is how I named it)
What I've tried so far is a CPAN search, which pointed me to a recently
created module called ApacheLog::Parser
>From the C5 shell, I used something like this (heavily refined from how I started)
---------- sh script ---------
#rpm --import http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL
yum install ncftp --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=epel
yum -y install perl-Test-Pod
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Class::Accessor::Classy'
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Time::Piece'
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Date::Piece'
perl -MCPAN -e 'install File::Fu'
# yum install perl-IPC-Run3
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Getopt::Helpful'
perl -MCPAN -e 'install ApacheLog::Parser'
------------------ end snip -----------
the above worked on a fresh install of C5.2 with a LAMP setup.
CPAN asked for ncftp in its setup.
I must have tried 50-60 commands before I settled on the abbreviated version above.
As an exercise, I took a shot at using cpan2rpm to package the
tar.gz's into RPM's
the resulting RPM's are here:
they are signed with my RPM-GPG key
