Re: Logging to DB
- I used DB based logs for awhile. It was 'sexy' in that you
could do all sorts of fun real-time analysis on the
contents etc. You could log to different DB's or just add
a field 'host' or something.
I stopped, it wasnt worth maintaining, people got tired of
it and no one cared about 'sexy' anymore. I was afraid of
potential performance hits, more data to back-up bla bla.
I just outsource to webtrends live now, its cheaper then
maintaining in house tools. I still keep the file logs but
I never touch them unless its for something webtrends can
not report on like file downloads.
