Subject Re: [logging] API - methods for logging entry and exit events
Date Fri, 21 Jan 2005 19:45:46 GMT

Logging too much can be as bad as the absence of logging.

Cluttering the log output with entry and exit events will increase the
amount of noise and negatively impact the usefulness of the
logs. Consequenly, logging enter and exit events amount to bad practice.

For a deployed system, which one would assume has undergone some
testing, no one, and I mean no one, will care about method entry and
exit. A developer may have use for entry and exit methods during
development but such statements should be removed well before the
application is deployed.
