7.22. Log

Groonga has two log files. They are process log and query log. Process log is for all of groonga executable file works. Query log is just for query processing.

7.22.1. Process log

Process log is enabled by default. Log path can be customized by groonga --log-path option. Each log has its log level. If a log is smaller than Groonga process' log level, it's not logged. Log level can be customized by groonga -l or log_level.

7.22.1.1. Format

Process log uses the following format:

#{TIME_STAMP}|#{L}| #{MESSAGE}

Some multi-process based applications such as groonga-httpd and PGroonga use the following format:

#{TIME_STAMP}|#{L}|#{PID}: #{MESSAGE}
TIME_STAMP

It's time stamp uses the following format:

YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss.SSSSSS
YYYY

MM
Month with two digits.
DD

#{TIME_STAMP}|#{ID}|:#{ELAPSED_TIME} #{PROGRESS}
#{TIME_STAMP}|#{ID}|<#{ELAPSED_TIME} #{RETURN_CODE}
TIME_STAMP

It's time stamp uses the following format:
