Logging
« on: May 27, 2007, 01:56:13 pm »
I was thinking, seeing as chat logs can be very invaluable, that there could be a way for the IRCd itself to log chat, events, etc. and be able to be accessed by the channel admin.

Now some networks have a lot of traffic obviously, so having the logs permanently stored on the IRCd server itself wouldn't be such a good idea. But if logging was disabled by default, and deleted say - daily, with the option for before the log is to be deleted to be uploaded to an FTP server of the channel admins choice, that could be a better idea.

That's just a suggestion, and from my experience logs can be very helpful in many circumstances, and as the only person with a 100% accurate logging ability is the daemon itself, it would be better than a user operated logger.

This is a feature that will never be in the IRCd by default due to the privacy and legal concerns this rises.

Corporate users or special networks who for legal reasons need to log this mostly also have access to the skills required to make this happen easilly.
