Subject Re: Some things I noticed ...

Hi Chris,

thanks for your feedback!
1) should be improved after the next release, as there will be an SP_DEBUG env variable that
can be used in development mode. No further changes related to the hostname should be required
2) is harder to implement, as we match the output of an event against the requirements of
a processor and therefore cannot easily handle dynamic events. But let's discuss ways how
to address this ;-)
3) is something we absolutely need to address in the near future, fully agree!

this component. The first time it is used the settings are stored in Consul and loaded the
next time. However if I change the structure of the settings, this is not detected or handled.
I have to manually update/delete the settings in consul. I think it shouldn’t be difficult
to check if the structure is equal/similar and to react on changes (remove now obsolete settings,
redefine settings that have changed in their configuration, add new settings)

explicitly defined. In addition a processor would be good that can enrich an event by upgrading
undeclared event properties to declared ones (Hope you understand what I mean)

order and size of columns) and I go to another page and come back, the settings are gone again.
It would be great (and pretty important) to save such customizations.
