As I recall. Tomcat has a way to configure access logs. But it's been a long time since I've used that so I don't know the details.

Someone more Tomcat-savvy might chirp in, or you could start looking through the Tomcat docs.

You could configure a servlet filter for all servlets/JSPs, and do the appropriate accounting in that.

In tomcat/conf/server.xml, look for access-logging.
Select the logger you want to use (there is a description of each in the comments) and uncomment the valve for the logger you want to use.
Restart tomcat and the access logs will start showing up in tomcat/logs.
