Unified log files
« on: June 04, 2010, 10:52:49 am »
I have to tail loads of logs to debug my system. I've never seen a linux app package with so many separate log files. This is actually quite prohibitive.

How about Core.log and Devices.log and get rid of all those spawn device and device logs? The Devices.log could have a column for device id so with grep I can still filter things out. Or... maybe just one log!

Any thoughts?

Chris

I think what we have is sufficient, IMHO. One or two big log files would be prohibitively big.

Setup a personal Splunk server and setup LMCE to dump all it's logs to that?

I'd love that. try working on a solution that could be tied into the individual links into the web admin per device.

Splunk is not opensource. Any other ideas?
