The SIPCLF working group has defined a Common Log Format (CLF)
framework for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) servers.  This CLF
mimics the successful event logging format found in well-known web
servers like Apache and web proxies like Squid.  This document
proposes an indexed text encoding format for the SIP CLF that retains
the key advantages of a text-based format while significantly
increasing processing performance over a purely text-based
implementation.  This file format adheres to the SIP CLF information
model and provides an effective encoding scheme for all mandatory and
optional fields that appear in a SIP CLF record.  

This document is a product of the SIP Common Log Format Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
