We are analyzing website access with GoAccess web log analyzer. Here's what we see under Requested Files (URLs):

> 2 - Requested Files (URLs)                                 Total: 366/66721

Apache's polling of child processes is skewing the results of the analysis. Its also skewing the Visitor Hostname IPs, Operating Systems, Browsers, etc.

How do we tell GoAccess to ignore the Apache polls?

You can run GoAccess with -e, for example:

goaccess -f /var/log/apache2/access.log -e ::1
