......excerpt from the release notes:

Access Log Fields
The native access.log has ten (10) fields. There is one entry here for
each HTTP (client) request and each ICP Query. HTTP requests are
logged when the client socket is closed. A single dash ('-') indicates
unavailable data.

 1) Timestamp
        The time when the client socket is closed. The format is "Unix
        time" (seconds since Jan 1, 1970) with millisecond resolution.
 2) Elapsed Time
        The elapsed time of the request, in milliseconds. This is time
        time between the accept() and close() of the client socket.
 3) Client Address
        The IP address of the connecting client, or the FQDN if the
        'log_fqdn' option is enabled in the config file.
 4) Log Tag / HTTP Code
        The Log Tag describes how the request was treated locally (hit,
        miss, etc). All the tags are described below. The HTTP code
        is the reply code taken from the first line of the HTTP reply
        header. Non-HTTP requests may have zero reply codes.
 5) Size
        The number of bytes written to the client.
 6) Request Method
        The HTTP request method, or ICP_QUERY for ICP requests.
 7) URL
        The requested URL.
 8) Ident
        If 'ident_lookup' is on, this field may contain the username
        associated with the client connection as derived from the
        ident service.
 9) Hierarchy Data / Hostname
        A description of how and where the requested object was
10) Content Type
        The Content-type field from the HTTP reply.
