Add userid from Logs to piwik

I am new to piwik. Can anyone suggest me the correct log format to import apache logs. Please find the below sample logs.
user agent values are getting displayed in piwik but not the custom variable,resolution and userid. - - [24/Mar/2014:05:58:10 +0000] “GET /piwik.php? HTTP/1.1” 200 54 “-” “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/34.0.1847.116 Safari/537.36”

Command what i used is:

python --url=http://localhost/piwik --idsite=1 --enable-http-errors --show-progress --enable-bots recorders=2 /var/tmp/testlog_New.log

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

What error message did you get?

The apache logs should be imported automatically and the log format detected.

Hi matt,
I am not getting any error. But i am not seeing any values in UI. Please find the below console.

can you try running the ./console core:archive command ?

Not sure what else could be the problem, it should work :wink:

You are missing the minus sign before “recorders=2” and the python script is puking on that.
