Example Schema: Variable Width Columns (Combined Web Server Log)

This example is similar to the regular Web Server Access Log, but has additional fields at the end. This is a common "Combined" log format.

database /tmp/testdb
table    htlog2
recdelim \x0a
multiple
trimspace
datefmt dd/mmm/yyyy:HH:MM:SS
# this expression should be on one line with no intervening spaces
recexpr  >>^\P=[^ ]+ +-?[^ ]* +-?[^ ]* +\[=[^\]]+]= +"=[^ ]+ +
[^ "]+ HTTP/?\digit?\.?\digit?"= +[^ ]+ +[^ ]+ +"=[^"]*"= +"=
[^/"]*/*[^ "]* *[^"]*"[^\x0a]*
#       Name            Type            Tag
