10.15 Do not resolve hosts on logging valves

Warning! Audit Deprecated

This audit has been deprecated and will be removed in a future update.

View Next Audit Version


Setting enableLookups to true on Connector will result in a DNS look-ups to obtain the host name of the remote client before logging any information. This uses additional resources when logging.


Allowing enableLookups adds additional overhead to resolve the host name of a remote client which is rarely needed.


In Connector elements, set the enableLookups attribute to false or remove it.

<Connector ... enableLookups='false' />

Default Value:

By default, DNS lookups are disabled.
