I'm investigating using nginx to support a event logging framework. Unfortunately, or events come in via a http post.

What I was looking at, was any way to use the standard access logs to somehow log the post values?

If not, if there is some way to build a custom module, that could handle the web requests and write out to the standard log file.

An obvious solution is to write a cgi-bin app that processes the http posts, but I was hoping to use the built in nginx log, so I can use the USR1 log rotate and built in stuff there......

THoughts or suggestions on building a highly available event logging framework ?
