The name of that file is 'ovirt-requests-log', and it contains messages
like this:

  [12/May/2017:11:09:30 +0200] "Correlation-Id:
9e259b75-ee9e-4501-9737-b38d2c318123" "Duration: 393514us" "GET
/ovirt-engine/api/vms HTTP/1.1" 2322

Note however that it is generated by the web server, so the reported
time will include all the web server activities required to complete the

If you need to get the same measurement from the point of view of the
application server you can edit the
/usr/share/ovirt-engine/services/ovirt-engine/ovirt-engine.xml.in file
and do the following modifications:

1. Modify the AJP connector (the one that Apache talks to) so that it
records the start time of the request:

    record-request-start-time="true"  <-- This is new

2. Enable the access log:

  <host name="default-host" alias="localhost">
    <filter-ref .../>
    <access-log pattern="%U %Dms" directory="/var/log/ovirt-engine"
prefix="my" suffix=".log"/>  <-- This is new

Then restart the engine. It will start to write to
/var/log/ovirt-engine/my.log lines like this:

  /ovirt-engine/api/vms 801ms

The format of the pattern is described here:


Remember that the ovirt-engine.xml.in file isn't considered a
configuration file, so your changes will be lost next time you update
the engine RPMs.
