Description Sitsofe Wheeler 2005-01-28 22:27:13 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040804 Galeon/1.3.17

Description of problem:
Logwatch insists on reporting output for every single page that has had a hit in its output. This level of detail (at least for pages that return 200) should be saved for the high detail setting.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a busy website and enable logwatch mail
2. Read log watch mail

Actual Results:  logwatch is packed with 100s of lines like:
GET /~x/photo/photo.php/xmas04?view=0&mode= HTTP/1.1 with response code(s) 2 200 responses
putting one of actually reading the log

Expected Results:  Perhaps only hits that generated a non 200 response to be listed on detail levels less than high. Maybe just a total summary by response code.
