#2422 closed Feature request (wontfix)

Better logging options

The one major thing lacking in Filezill Server is
logging options. I would like to see things like file
size limitations, control of log name, log location,
being able to rotate the log out ever hour, day,
week, month, ext. This is needed for security badly.
Someone was trying to hack my Filezilla Server FTP
today and when I tryed to open the log a 106 MB file
takes a hell of a long time to load. Giving these
options (expesialy to start a new log every hour,
day, week, month) whould have helped me a huge amount.

Please include the following information in the log file

  • Complete path of the file transferred
  • Size of the file transferred
  • Duration or time it took to transfer file including milliseconds.

D HH:mm:ss.SSS – Days, Hours, Minutes, Seconds, Milliseconds

Triage suggestion

It appears that this has not been implemented in FileZilla Server 0.9.60. In addition, this feature request is 11 years old.

I suggest closing this ticket as "wontfix".

@eagle_f90: This request does not appear to be about increasing your server security but instead about breaking the logs up into smaller files because of current software limitations. I suggest using log analyzer software, or file splitting software, or a file viewer that does not load the entire file into memory all at once.
