It appears that the output is something you've added, as
opposed to output created in the default http service.

I think one of these three options would be simplest:

- extract the LOGIN statements with a script in your
   favorite language and execute outside of logwatch, or

- create your own service to parse those statements
   inside logwatch, or

- have the program print out the LOGIN statements in a
   format more like the http log format.  It doesn't have
   to be the same - see conf/services/http.conf on how
   to modify the $LogFormat to use a different format.
   But some things, like the date format, need to follow
   the http convention, and it expects some sort of
   http-style request field.
