Logging: One logfile per server-start - can it be changed?
I just installed the TeamSpeak 3 server yesterday, and so far, I'm very happy! There's one thing I find a little bit annoying. It's not a big bug but just a minor annoyance: It seems that TeamSpeak 3 starts a new logfile each time the server is restarted. While I see that this can make sense in certain circumstances (keep those logfiles small ;-) ), it's rather unpleasant when you use a logfile viewer like tail or baretail.
Especially with Baretail, having one "current-logfile.log" would be very nice, and BareTail remembers the last opened logfiles and that way, I wouldn't have to open another logfile each time the TeamSpeak 3 had restarted.
I noticed that there's the logpath command line parameter - having a "one logfile for all sessions" switch would be cool.
In general, I think the ideal way of dealing with logfiles is "rotating": One logfile is the "current logfile", and once per day (week, month, certain logfile size, whatever), the current logfile is stored with a name that has a timestamp in it (like the logfiles right now), and "current logfile" is a new empty logfile.
Not sure if this is done differently on other systems, I have the server installed on a Windows machine.
Sunny regards and merry christmas,
