Many log parser scripts are unable to parse Filezilla Server Logs in thier current form. Can we have an option for loggin formats in the server i.e. XFERLOG or W3C extended format.

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

I found links to the W3C log format and the ProFTPD log file format. It appears that many log analysis tools support at least one of these formats.

If implemented, this change could increase third-party tool compatibility with FileZilla Server.

It appears that this isn't going to get implemented. I'm closing this ticket due to its age.
