No good things about logging

The BileBlog

So, what do we have as a result? We have JBoss, with 6-7 pages of output when things go well, and a (not very) abridged version of War and Peace when they (usually) do not.

Sometimes I react a bit touchy to vulgar language like contained in the post quoted above but the BileBlog always manages to be incredibly funny writing like that. That post just made my day …. and it’s so true: to have your software log useful things is not as easy as one might think and most of the stuff in logfiles is a lot of garbage nobody needs or wants to see.
