Subject [jira] Updated: (WINK-223) reduce log output on 404s
Date Mon, 02 Nov 2009 22:50:59 GMT


Mike Rheinheimer updated WINK-223:

    Attachment: WINK-223.patch

Suggested solution.  Another solution may be to log the initial hit to a non-existant resource,
and ignore successive hits.  This may complicate things... but I could see possibly keeping
a hashmap with the key being the client ip address + target URI.  That way we log it once.

Thinking out loud...

is issued from the server?

 Note that in all cases, the stack trace will be printed.  Specifically, a 404 will land in
the, and will print a full stack trace to the log.  Is this really necessary?
> On the one hand, it may be valuable to see which handler determined that a client has
targetted a missing resource.  On the other hand, info is probably sufficient.  Also, consider
what happens when a malicious client comes along trying to fill up server logs or otherwise
hack a server by hitting any and all URLs and resource it can.
