Dear SIP-OPS folk,

The IETF SIPCLF working group has been chartered to develop a SIP Common Log 
Format, analogous to Apache CLF. Charter is at 

As of this moment, that's the ONLY thing we're chartered to produce - so you 
could log onto a SIP box and "tail" or "grep" the logs, and kind of know 
what you'd expect to see, but considerations about correlating logs from 
multiple boxes, moving log entries to a management platform, etc. are out of 

We're looking at a variety of approaches here, and Theo and I would like to 
have your input about what would really get used by SIP operators. For 
instance, we might use an IPFIX or SYSLOG format, to inherit infrastructure 
so that SIPCLF would just be part of the management infrastructure. We'd 
love to know what operators think!

Please take a look at 
http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/sip-clf/current/maillist.html, and let 
us know what you think (on the SIPCLF mailing list, of course).

Subscription information is at 

We would also love to hear from you about the SIPCLF problem statement, 
currently in WGLC for adoption - it's at 


Spencer, as SIPCLF co-chair
