looking at the logs for something today I noticed that our logs are
showing hostnames, not ip addresses of the remote hosts. Which is
somewhat wasteful since - for the local logs we don't need that extra
resolver lookup - and it makes grepping complicated b/c you never know
what the dns reverse map is going to look like :(
so I was thinking of changing the combined, error and common log
format for apache in our configs from using %h (remotehost) to using
%a (remote ip) 
Whle we have hostnamelookups off in all of our configs it appears that
using %h overrides (or ignores) that.
so - is there anything I'm not thinking about or forgetting that
changing the log format from %h to %a will result in?
Not that I can think of or see off hand.
awstats runs on the logs (or a subset of them), but it should do it's
