Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1272) Change sysinfo to print to error log (derby.log) on boot of derby if derby.stream.error.logSeverityLevel=0

Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-1272:

Hi Raman,

Thanks for bringing this issue back to life.  It will surely be very helpful to users and
support folks.  I looked at the patch and tried it out and it all seemed to work fine.  A
few comments.
- I am concerned about adding $derby.tools.src.dir to the build.xml.  Sysinfo is available
in derby.jar, but the other tools classes are not.  Adding derby.tools.src.dir allows access
to all the tools classes, which is not ideal.  I wonder if using reflection can avoid the
need to change the build.xml.

-  Sysinfo prints security exceptions for information it can't access. e.g.
Java user name:  Security Exception: java.security.AccessControlException: Access denied (java.util.PropertyPermission
user.name read)

I am concerned that this might become a red herring for those debugging a problem and thinking
this might be the root of it.   DERBY-1273 is filed to improve the message though and I think
we can handle that as a separate issue.  I asked for some feedback from some support people
to get an additional opinion. I'll let you know what I hear.

-  The test doesn't seem to actually test that sysinfo printed.  It would be good to have
a test that tests that.

> It is often very difficult to collect correct sysinfo output from user environments because
 sysinfo run from the commandline does not have the same classpath as the jvm that started
Derby or Derby was loaded with a custom classloader.
> It would be very helpful in assisting users in diagnosing their issues if sysinfo dumped
to the error log if  derby.stream.error.logSeverityLevel=0  or even by default.
