How to monitor Apache logs i.e create dashboards for them?

New Member

Hi All,

I want to monitor the error logs using Splunk. And create dashboards for the same.

Sample logs :

[Sun Jul 09 03:25:02 2017] [info] Apache/2.2.32 (Unix) DAV/2 configured -- resuming normal operations
[Sun Jul 09 04:06:13 2017] [error] [client]  File does not exist : /var/www/html/robots.txt
[Mon Jul 10 20:24:52 2017] [error] (111) Connection refused : proxy: HTTP: attempt to connect to  failed
[Tue Jul 19 23:02:01 2017] [error] [client] user test: authentication failure for "/~dcid/test1": Password Mismatch

Information from the above sample logs :
1. File does not exist
2. connection failed
3. authentication failed

There are hundred types of errors present in logs. And hence creating eventtypes for each error text is not a good way.

So, please help me with this.

Thanks in advance!
