Short term, I think a combination of these two might be the best
option for the specific problem Jared is talking about:
1) We can wrap an aspect around the RPCService methods that will
store the name of the current JSON-RPC method in a request attribute
2) We can then use the Tomcat Access Log's format string to pull the
value of Service.RPCMethod into the access logs
I'm not precisely certain how much work 1) will be, but 2) should be
under an hour for implementation and testing.
Longer term, a more robust system would be great, but this solution
is pretty attractive for its expediency.
