Column width in live logging tab to remember last width

Post by Keba » 2009-07-22 17:44

I've had a good search through and couldn't find this feature request anywhere - the only direct reference I could find was:

I'm sure this is a well known 'feature' - the width of each column when you start up the live logging (Status, logging tab) are quite small, and I have to resize the date/time, ip address and text fields every time I want to watch the live activity.

It would be nice for the width of each column to remember the last size they were set to, rather than be auto-sized or defaulted to something small each time the admin console (or tab!) is started.

Ditto.

It would also be nice to not stop live logging, when navigating away from the status area.

Live logging is a different issue, if it is left on and forgotten about it will slow your server down.

Perhaps having it on a rolling log of no more than 5 meg or something or stop logging when window loses focus or when mouse cursor hasn't moved for X minutes etc etc.

hMailServer 5.4 will be a "fix annoying stuff and improve troubleshootability"-release where I guess this would fit in nicely.

Keba,

Sorry for hijacking your feature request.


Doom,

I leave live logging on for long amounts of time, I have never seen it slow down the server, at least not on the machine I use anyway.

Have you had that happen before, a slowdown of the server, if live logging is left on?

Like you said, maybe something along the lines of the last current, 5Mb of entries would be good. I only use Live logging to watch for something. For any real work with the logs, I open the log files in other programs.


Martin,

hMailServer 5.4? You sir, are a programming machine. :)


Thanks,
-Dean

I am still just waiting to upgrade to 5.2, when it's marked production ready.

You are a hard worker, thanks.
