Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-248) The log process should use SASL for logging
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2009 02:43:59 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-248:


Sadly, I don't know whats normal either. :) I guess maybe I was assuming that there'd be a
log4j style logging system that we should be plugging into. Though I have seen other loggers
(RabbitMQ I think?) that looked like they were using a system log thinger. Though I definitely
see your point on those being entirely too verbose for access logs.


If you're still interested in taking a crack at this, I think the first step would be to check
out current projects and see what they do for logging. I would suggest looking at Yaws, RabbitMQ,
ejabberd to see if you can figure out if they're using a system logger similarly to ours or
doing something that appears to be more built-in. If it turns out that our system isn't as
non-standard as I had originally thought then this might not actually be much of a patch.

There are plenty of other tickets that could be worked on if you're still interested in writing
patches. If you want I can go through and find a couple candidates that would be of similar
effort to get you started. We're always looking for fresh eyes and new ideas.

wrapper around SASL ( would be a good improvement.
