ok, thanks for the hint!

Each webserver serves many virtual hosts. Each virtual host has one
access.log. So for instance, on server 1, we have s1v1.log for vhost 1 and
s1v2.log for vhost 2. On server 2, we have s2v1.log and s2v2.log. Then
s1v1.log and s2v1.log are aggregated on the central log box into v1.log,
and s1v2.log and s2v2.log into v2.log.
