Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-877) Export Log Files
Date Wed, 09 Jan 2013 07:20:12 GMT


John Kinsella commented on CLOUDSTACK-877:

OK, use cases! :)

I like where you're going with the wiki page - might want to spell out that you're allowing
people to get logs from the SSVMs/hypervisors/etc?

One thing to keep in mind - how to securely fetch the appropriate log from the system and
provide it to the user. You can't take user input to specify a filename/path to file to retrieve.
If you do that, it becomes difficult to make sure they're now downloading say a password file
or database dump.

Really not sure the best way to go about this - Unless the master/agents parse the contents
of log4j-cloud.xml and syslog.conf (etc), the next best thing is to have a config file/db
entry specifying where to grab logs. That'll work for basic cases...

I suspect you might want to also create a separate feature request for some sort of 1-click
download of relevant configuration options to send into support...
