I just wanted to add a couple of comments on using sFlow as the logging
protocol - there are also sFlow plugins for Apache and Tomcat, allowing
you to get the same data from all the HTTP server pools.

On the analyzer side, the HTTP sFlow export also includes performance
counters that can be trended with Graphite or Ganglia. You can also use
sflowtool to convert the binary sFlow datagrams to ASCII combined
logfile format that can be fed into any log analyzer.
