Subject Managing Couch Log File
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2012 18:42:23 GMT

In response to a separate thread about replication, Dave Cottlehuber 
asked to see the log file from a remote CouchDB from which I was trying 
to replicate.  I then sent a request to the person managing that 
machine.  In return, I received a text file that was about 500 MB.  
That's rather a long file to search through, and my text editor did not 
fare well. (I wrote a perl script to loop through and find the part of 
the log from the day I needed; that's not my question for today.)

My question is: how do people manage these log files?  Do you have some 
automated procedure for splitting pieces off to archive them for a 
while? Does couch provide admin tools to help with this? Or do you just 
let the logs grow to gargantuan sizes?
