I don't quite understand the question.  If the mount is down, how would 
Icecast get this information?

Ordinarily you can log this sort of info to the playlist log which I think 
is not defined by default but I could be wrong about that.  I don't think 
IP address is stored but you could use the access log to figure that out. 
But as I say, if the mount is down then no data is coming in so there'll be 
nothing to log.

Or are you meaning a situation where the stream mount is down but the 
metadata updates keep on coming in?  I doubt Icecast would consider such a 
situation valid so probably doesn't log it as such.  It might dump enough 
info to the error log, haven't tried it.
