RE: Proposal for Logging in Svnserve

From: nick vajberg <nickvajberg_at_yahoo.dk>

A few opinions:

In general, I'd like the logging facility to be
independent of server. That is, logging should work
the same way whether running httpd or svnserve or
something else.

That way, if the logging API got pluggable, even svn
under httpd could benefit from stuff like networked
logging (rather than polluting the apache log)

>> 4.1 Customizable Log Format

Make it fixed so people can easily write tools that
parses and aggregates/presents the log info in various
ways. The alternative is to write API's for traversing
the log, but that's not worth it IMO.

>>4.3 Support for syslogd

Note that there are syslogd ports for win32. At any
rate, please don't even consider using the NT event
log; files rule in this case.

>> 4.2 Support more verbose output and debug tracing.

I disagree with brane that logging and debug logging
are different animals - that's just a load of crap.

More than once have I turned on the debug level in
stuff like Hibernate without even restarting the
server running it.

The log4j levels are good examples and it works really
well in practice.

>> 4.5 XML Logging format

Don't go there. Please.
