Access-log-analyser-2.0.1 can't analyze atlassian-jira-http-access.log file?

On my standalone Jira server, it generated the access.log files and I ran them through the Access-log-analyser-2.0.1.jar.  It produced some interested stats so I wanted to try it at a customer's Data Center install of 2 Jira nodes.  Either node had any access.log files so I enabled the Jira Http Access logs under "Logging and Profiling." Several atlassian-jira-http-access.log files were generated.

When I ran them under the analyser I got numerous errors:

So as a brute force fix, I deleted all the lines with ' - - - '. i.e. no timing results
and got the following error:

Reading atlassian-jira-http-access.log ...

Analysing data ...
Detected that access logs are NOT in standard JIRA format - response times will not be analysed.

Unable to detect the context path. Please contact Atlassian

 

Next I added the --context-path='/'  to got the warning:

Using configured context path ''
Reading atlassian-jira-http-access.log ...

Analysing data ...
Detected that access logs are NOT in standard JIRA format - response times will not be analysed.

Writing summary to request-log-summary.wiki
Writing time chart to requests-over-time.html
Writing unrecognised requests to unknown-requests.txt

 

Basically the results with useless.  

Ideas???

Thanks, Brent
