In access_log file, huge numbers of log entries like this: 1764839163 - 0.242 [01/Aug/2013:11:02:01 +0800] ""
"-" 400 0 "-" "-" "-"

log_format defined in http conf block:

'$remote_addr $connection $remote_user $request_time [$time_local]
"$hostname" "$request" $status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer"
"$http_cookie" "$http_user_agent"'

Points I realized:
1) Cannot catch $request, which is full original request line according to
Nginx documentation. So can it tell at which phrase the connection was
2) $body_bytes_sent is zero. So no HTTP response body was generated.
3) $http_refer, $http_cookie and $http_user_agent cannot be caught. So does
this indicate any issue?

p.s. this might be caused by HTTPS/SSL connections from mobile client, but
I'm not sure.

Could anyone give any words?

Thank you in advance!
