[Pulp-list] Download analytics from CDN?

Hi Danny,

I don't know much about AWS logging but Pulp does set the filename in the
response-content-disposition[0]. Could that be used to determine the
filename for each request?

If not, I'm looking at the boto3 docs for get_object[1] to see if there's
another parameter we could set to help you track the filename in requests
but I'm seeing anything useful. My knowledge of s3 is a bit limited so if
you have a suggestion how we can construct a request to S3 that would help
you to track the filenames of requests to s3, I could probably look at how
we could support it in Pulp 3.
