Reduce logging volume

Quick self-reminder on reducing logging volume when monitoring an http endpoint with the Datadog Agent HTTP Check.

For nginx, add something like:

    location / {
        if ($http_user_agent ~* "Datadog Agent/.*") {
            access_log off;

to your site’s location statement.

This should cut down on your logging volume, at the expense of not having a log statement for every time the check runs (once every 20 seconds).
