Understanding influxdb httpd log format


Hi :slight_smile:

I want to explore and investigate some of our queries latency in order to do that I’m looking into httpd logs written by influxdb but I can’t find any information about the format, the begging looks like the common access logs format but there is some fields that I can’t recognize or find any information about them.
For example:
Jan 17 08:47:48 my-influxdb influxd[2158]: [httpd] x.x.x.x - user [17/Jan/2018:08:47:48 +0000] “POST /write?consistency=one&db=aaa&p=%5BREDACTED%5D&precision=n&u=user HTTP/1.1” 204 0 “-” “okhttp/3.9.1” 18232c72-fb63-11e7-8e91-000000000000 22718

What’s the meaning of this GUID and addition digits ? where can I find any documentation about this ?
Any other ideas how can I test the performance of my influxdb ? (queries latency, etc… )

Thanks in advance,
