Are there field extractions available for IPlanet web access logs?

Here's the fields followed by a description:

arrow.a.com. (In this case, the hostname is shown because the web server's setting for DNS lookups is enabled; if DNS lookups were disabled, the client's IP address would appear.

RFC 931 information

  • (RFC 931 identity not implemented)

Hello! I have more than five implementations of iplanet log files format string. Because a format of any web access log depends on the administrator who manages server.
Give me a few rows of your own log file and I'll give you exact string of field extraction

Try these in props.conf

BTW, the other field is probably not needed. It's there in case you have some integer at the end of the event that is unaccounted for.
