I just searched the trac and feature request page ( but did not found it.

It will be very nice to support logging to external process in HttpLogModule.

access_log  "| /some/external/logging/process"

And if the process is dead, restart it if necessary.

No, thanks. If you really want logging to an external process - try using mkfifo(1), but please keep in mind that this will lead to service interruption if your logging process won't be able to cope with load. I would recommend logging to a normal file and using "tail -F /path/to/log | script" instead if you need some log processing.
