I like the idea about having a more flexible logging story.  Long time ago I developed the EventLog plugin to provide similar functionality.  The EventLog plugging plugged into the logging and captured such logs into the database with some GUI on top of it.  I suggest that you compare this with yours and see if we can end up with one that has the best of both.  If not, then it is always OK to have another one that provides a different feature set.


I've created a project for csv_import plugin on the tracker and added you (lionheart33806?) as a manager.  Once you create your logging plugin or combine it with the EventLog one, we can create a project for that as well.

Hi all,


Because the current logging API has got a closed number of “levels” (which are not levels but categories), it is not usable by, for example, plug-ins, if we need to add a category. Because this was a need I had for some of the private plug-ins I developed for our company, I wrote a plug-in especially made to be used by other plug-ins, and which purpose is to manage logging. It is highly configurable, as it is based on Apache Log4PHP library.


I was now thinking of :

·         Putting this plug-in in the official git space for Mantis plug-ins.

·         Asking for a new project in Mantis bug tracker in order to manage this plug-in maintenance.

·         Suggesting to replace the current logging_api with the content of the plug-in for the future releases (master branch).


What do you think ?




P.S. By the way, don’t you think it would be a good idea to create a MantisBT project for the plug-in Csv_import, as I asked 2 weeks ago ? For the moment, all issues concerning this plug-in are stored in the very very long issue 0004220 (http://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=4220).

All of the data generated in your IT infrastructure is seriously valuable.
Why? It contains a definitive record of application performance, security
threats, fraudulent activity, and more. Splunk takes this data and makes
sense of it. IT sense. And common sense.
