I need some help in finding some log pattern in apache logs related to application cash? Is there a specific key word attached related to this event e.g 'crash'.

Thanks.

This would need a lot more information in the question to be helpful I'm afraid. What is the application? What language/system? What type of crash? etc –  joesk Feb 11 '13 at 17:18
    
@joesk thank you for the answer. The application is purely web-application mostly with db connectivity, written in php or asp.net –  asadz Feb 11 '13 at 17:20
    
@user970533 - You could look in the error.log file(s) for 'Apache service started' or similar, when you KNOW Apache was already running. Usually, a crash is silent in the sense that Apache restarts immediately and it can be hard to detect. Specifically if an APPLICATION crashes, you'll need to specify the exact problem: if you mean the App has some sort of malfunction itself, or if Apache is to blame. We cannot answer specifically without this. –  ionFish Feb 11 '13 at 20:11
    
@ionFish i respect this, so its all dependent upon application nature, different application produces different sounds (error). The best way it can be done if application itself make custom logs messages i suppose –  asadz Feb 11 '13 at 20:55
    
Yes, if your APP crashes but NOT Apache, then you'll have to perhaps look for PHP logs or something. –  ionFish Feb 11 '13 at 20:56
