Subject [jira] [Created] (GEODE-7324) FIx invalid encoding in log files
Date Fri, 18 Oct 2019 22:20:00 GMT
Blake Bender created GEODE-7324:

             Summary: FIx invalid encoding in log files
                 Key: GEODE-7324
             Project: Geode
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: native client
            Reporter: Blake Bender

As a developer, I wish to be able to write log parsing utilities for the native client if
need be.  To do this, I need to be able to read the text in the log files via standard languages
like Python, C#, etc.  Unfortunately, recent changes to some log statements in the native
client code will cause invalid utf-8 bytes to be written to the log in some circumstances,
making reading the log very difficult.


repro steps:

i. Enable debug-level logging in NC integration tests, and set log-file to a known filename

ii. Run a test case, to generate the log file

iii.  Attempt to parse the file as utf-8 in Python


Expected result:
 * File parses correctly

Actual result:
 * Python throws an exception, saying it has encountered an invalid start byte


This is known to happen when using the '%zu' format specifier to log a value of type std::chrono::Rep
on MacOS.  Other compilers/OSes/types may or may not display this behavior.
