#2462 closed Feature request (wontfix)

Make logs human-readable

Operating system version:


I have activate the Logs function but is very difficult
to understand WHO download WHAT and if the download of
a file was finished correctly.
I think that would be one good option to have the
posibility of a specific log for the operations of
download/upload, something like: ID, Account, IP,
Operation, TransferFile, Time, response.

Operation: Download or Upload
Response: Ok or Interrupted

Practically the reassumed of what happens in the bottom
of server interface.

Yes, have a "event" log that lists events rather than the
current "advanced" log that lists every command and response.

I don't like Microsoft IIS for some reasons, but their logs are quite enough for non-debugging purposes.
They are nearly human readable, except FTP success codes, which are used instead of words.
I need to store all logs, and FileZilla logs take too much disk space.
And they are difficult to understand as rightly mentioned by Fabio Maulo, particularly because of their huge size.
Please, make some options regarding style of logging.
One of the possible examles is Microsoft IIS FTP service truly customizable logging.

Thank you for your project!

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".

@fabiomaulo, I recommend using a log analyzer. An internet search should reveal a number of software packages that may be useful for parsing the existing log information and generating reports.
