I am not running apache and it may not be feasible as the clients are
not endowed enough.

In fact this is exactly the condition I wanted to capture as
unavailability window

FWIW, I am approaching this with tcpdump

tcpdump -s 0 -A -i eth0 -n -q -tttt '(dst host <mumble> and dst port
80) and tcp[13] == 2'

Basically checking for the SYN flag in the outgoing traffic.

But it is generating too much data for my purposes.

Another approach I have in mind is running a proxy and logging the
outgoing  connection -- will that be resource hungry? I've never tried






Is this the correct way?
