Question Apache Log - entries order


Hello,

On our server, apache log files has entries in mis-order of date. For example :

59.95.168.203 - - [15/Dec/2006:01:01:59 -0800]
59.95.168.203 - - [15/Dec/2006:01:08:19 -0800]
62.15.208.03 - - [15/Dec/2006:01:03:31 -0800]

I am unsure if apache logs entries in mis-order ?

Its running on CentOS 4.3 and apache version is 2.

What is the sequence of a request to server. As per my understanding, apache logs after sending the details as it need to log the bytes transferred and status.

So the date time should be in chornological order. But in log file we have several entries like above.

Thanks, Kirtimaan

well by your own definition it shouldn't necessarily be in chronological order at all, it'd be listed as the time of the request, but logged after the time to perform the transfer has also passed. so a big file will be logged later than a small file.
