Title: Logging Options
Post by: Brian000 on November 10, 2021, 10:32:06 PM
Hi,

I'm thinking about how to improve my script logging...

I currently have all logs (per server/client) write to a monthly-dated file, but have previously created a web API and site to report and manage those.

XMPP was great, as it would Ping my phone and other clients with messages, but MQTT was less good, because it would only store/display the last message (unless I logged those and that seemed like a pointless task - akin to logging the logging :)).

I've never, more than a thought anyway, considered a SYSLOG server - but like the idea of adding my router/switch/etc too... would that bring anything helpful to my party?

But what is YOUR view and what would YOU  recommend?

oh.... I have pretty poor internet, so anything which keeps traffic "internal" would be best or at least more reliable.

Thanks for your thoughts...
