Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-412) CouchDB fails to start when log file is a pipe
Date Wed, 20 Jan 2010 12:16:54 GMT


Brian Candler commented on COUCHDB-412:

I think this should be made a general facility to log via an external program: i.e. don't
hardcoded the path to, or the fact that it requires a filename argument for
the log destination.

This would then be comparable to the corresponding feature in Apache httpd:

CustomLog "|/path/to/program" ...

It would let you do lots of cool things: e.g. log to syslog or log via HTTP to another couchdb
server, without having to launch another process which tails a pipe.

> I have an 0.9 CouchDB. When the local.ini file's [log] file is actually a pipe (with
a known to be running consumer) rather than a file, CouchDB fails to start.
