    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: NCSA access data log is not returning   *
    *                      expected value for directives.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    NCSA access data log is not returning expected value for case
    sensitive directives
    (i.e. %u and %U).
    

Problem conclusion

  • The HTTP Channel NCSA access log was modified to return the
    proper directive values.
    
    To enable this new behavior, set the HTTP Channel custom
    property 'UseCaseSensitiveKeyMatcher'
    
    to true. Default value for this is false.
    
    Information on how to set HTTP Channel custom properties can
    be found here:
