UI Element List

Element Name Description

Date (date)

Logs the date on which the request occurred. Selected by default.

Time (time)

Logs the time, in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), at which the request occurred. Selected by default.

Client IP Address (c-ip)

Logs the IP address of the client that made the request. Selected by default.

User Name (cs-username)

Logs the name of the authenticated user who accessed the server. Anonymous users are indicated by a hyphen. Selected by default.

Service Name (s-sitename)

Logs the Internet service name and instance number that was running on the client at the time that the incident was logged.

Server Name (s-computername)

Logs the name of the server on which the log file entry was generated.

Server IP Address (s-ip)

Logs the IP address of the server on which the log file entry was generated. Selected by default.

Server Port (s-port)

Logs the server port number that is configured for the service. Selected by default.

Method (cs-method)

Logs the HTTP method, such as GET, that is used in the request. Selected by default.

URI Stem (cs-uri-stem)

Logs the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that is the target of the action. Selected by default.

Note

The URI for FTP requests usually applies only for a file or folder and does not log the full path of the file or folder. This makes reading log files difficult when you are working with a large volume of content. Because of this limitation, you can enable the Full Path field to list the detailed path information for the request.

Protocol Status (sc-status)

Logs the HTTP status code. Selected by default.

Win32 Status (sc-win32-status)

Logs the Windows status code. Selected by default.

Bytes Sent (sc-bytes)

Logs the number of bytes that the server sent.

Bytes Received (cs-bytes)

Logs the number of bytes that the server received.

Time Taken (time-taken)

Logs the length of time that the action took in milliseconds.

Server Port (s-port)

Logs the server port number that is configured for the service. Selected by default.

Host (cs-host)

Logs the host header name, if any.

Note

The host name that you configure for your Web site might appear differently in the log files because HTTP.sys logs host names by using the punycode-encoded format. (Punycode encodes Unicode strings into the limited character set permitted in host names. For more information, see RFC 3492.)

Protocol Substatus (cs-substatus)

Logs the protocol version, HTTP or FTP, that the client used. Selected by default.

Session ID (x-session)

Logs the FTP session identifier for the client's session. Selected by default.

Full Path (x-fullpath)

Logs the full relative path from the FTP root directory for the target of the action. Selected by default.

Additional Information (x-debug)

Logs descriptive information for the sc-status code. For example, if the sc-status code is 552, the additional information logged may be "User disk quota exceeded."

Client Port (c-port)

Logs the port of the client that made the request.
