Access logs are used to monitor access to Couchbase Server.
Couchbase Server maintains two access logs: which are
These are located in
Both record server access-attempts:
http_access_internal.log recording those made by server-internal components.
Each individual access-record features a timestamp; and may include the IP-address of the caller, whether the request was GET or POST, and the HTTP status-code resulting from the request.
Both logs are ASCII-text based.
Both should be consulted regularly; so that access-patterns can be reviewed.
http_access.log can be used to identify repeated access-failures and external IP-addresses that are suspicious.
