The web server handles all logging in terms of access and error logging for most CGI scripts. The detail of what is actually logged often depends on the quality and existance of error capture code. My approach so as not to have to sift through the webserver error logs is to redirect Stderr to a different file for each script using CGI::Carp qw/set_message/

If your using DBI the database logs all data with greater efficiency than a hand rolled solution. Transactional logs can be created by choosing to turn on automatic binary or text format logging. If you don't want to use the automatic logs databases also often have bundled programs or commands like mysqlhotcopy or mysqldump for backup purposes.

Do you think in these instances logging is therefore unecessary?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
