It is often required to parse the apache log, but the normal log format requires special handling like: https://github.com/JBlond/apache_log_parser
It is easier to have a direct output like JSON format.

LogFormat "{ \"time\":\"%t\", \"remoteIP\":\"%a\", \"host\":\"%V\", \"request\":\"%U\", \"query\":\"%q\", \"method\":\"%m\", \"status\":\"%>s\", \"userAgent\":\"%{User-agent}i\", \"referer\":\"%{Referer}i\" }" json

Now we have an easy to read log file.
