A question about this REMOTE_HOST stuff--generally, server
admins disable the hostname translation because it slows
down the server, correct? I agree that it's the "sane"
thing to do--but in this case, aren't you sort of defeating
the purpose by doing the hostname translation yourself?
The whole point, I thought, was to disable runtime hostname
translation, because it slows things down; you seem to
agree, so why re-introduce this step? Why not just
log IP addresses, then run a cron job later as part of your
stat analysis to do the hostname translation?
Just something to think about. If I'm missing the main
issues, let me know.
