Ugly Jira (4.4) atlassian-jira-http-access.log

I recently upgraded our Confluence to 4.3.7, and when I look at the atlassian-confluence-access.log I see a nice single entry per accessed page

However, in our Jira 4.4.1 environment (which we've had a for a while now), whenever I view a page, screes of information gets dumped in the atlassian-jira-http-access.log which makes it almost unreadable.

The above is me just browsing to the dashboard.

Is there any way of getting just one entry per page browsed, as with Confluence?

In general, I would expect an HTTP access log to show all HTTP requests made to the instance. If the browser is making all these requests then I would expect them to see them in the log. Is it your expectation that requests to resources such as CSS/JS/REST should be filtered out and not logged?

On a separate note, the dashboard is one of the most complicated pages in JIRA - each gadget is in a separate iframe with its own resources and is loaded via a separate request. The equivalent of the JIRA dashboard in Confluence is not the Confluence dashboard, but a Confluence page with many external macros embedded.
