FileZilla 3.10.0-rc1 problem

#1 Post by xeon » 2014-12-29 21:05

Hello,

I decided to try out the 3.10.0-rc1 version and the message log doesn't appear to show any detailed information like it did on the stable versions. Raw directory listings also don't seem to show up when enabled.

It's not a bug, it's a feature! Right-click the log and check 'Show detailed log'. Resets upon closing.

For the raw directory listings and other Debug features (like Debug messages in log), the behavior has been changed: Those are now session-only and reset when FileZilla is closed. However, if you are like me and like to have Debug features enabled, you need to define an environment variable in your system:

Code: Select all

FZDEBUG=1
With this variable set all Debug features will not reset, and the log will be detailed if Debug loglevel is >0.

Detailed logs are shown automatically in case of errors. In success cases they carry no relevant information, it's pointless to show them.

In that case, would it not make sense to then silence such error/status messages as the ones below?
11:35:57 Response: 421 Timeout.
11:35:57 Error: GnuTLS error -110: The TLS connection was non-properly terminated.
11:35:57 Status: Server did not properly shut down TLS connection
11:35:57 Error: Disconnected from server: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted
This makes people think that something is wrong, when according to a previous post you made, it's actually nothing to worry about.

You're right, these messages could be hidden as well.

Would it be possible, one day, to de-couple the screen vs. file logs completely? For example, full debug logging to file but minimal to screen?

Definitely possible, it would be fairly simple to implement.

It would be handy, as screen log can hold only finite lines, moves all the time when there's activity (hard to scroll then), and lacks certain details (connection #).

It could even go as far as offering a special mode that helps to re-create or analyze a problem by creating a special logfile with all necessary details that uses always English, for posting into these forums.
