Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: apache2
| Note that in httpd 2.0, unlike 1.3, the %b and %B format strings do
| not represent the number of bytes sent to the client, but simply the
| size in bytes of the HTTP response (which will differ, for instance,
| if the connection is aborted, or if SSL is used). The %O format
| provided by mod_logio will log the actual number of bytes sent over
| the network.
Unfortunately the Ubuntu packages have a default LogFormat that uses
%b rather than %O. Could we please change that? (I'm told, by a
former Apache developer, that it's not any more expensive than %b.)
This is not a theoretical problem, with the default LogFormat we see
horrificly (and demonstrably) inaccurate logging of data transferred
from our ISO image servers.
** Affects: apache2 (Ubuntu)
