Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-464) Allow POST to _log for external processes
Date Wed, 26 Aug 2009 23:16:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-464?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12748200#action_12748200

Robert Newson commented on COUCHDB-464:
---------------------------------------


Because people using couchdb-lucene with couchdb would prefer to read couch.log for the log
messages, and I suspect that applies to other externals/addons, etc.

It's clumsy if all addons are forced to log differently, it reduces the degree that addons
can be integrated. Since couchdb has support for grafting external processes (which actually
*can* log, I think), it's a shame that db_update_notification processes cannot.

That said, for couchdb-lucene, I intend to get off db_update_notification entirely and move
indexing into the the external searching process instead (typicall mapped to _fti). I think
I didn't do that before because the external was only started on demand? I forget.

> Add POST support to _log so that external processes can also log to couch.log. This would
allow couchdb-lucene (to pick a random example) to log consistently.
