Re: [Rdo-list] libvirtd default configuration

perhaps we have a misunderstanding... yogev wrote in the bug: configuration doesn't write logs -> no libvirt log exists :) libvirtd.conf currently has # for any logging - which means nothing is logged for libvirt, no debug, info, warn or error will be logged at all because the logs for libvirt are disabled. we did have an error where a libvirt domain was killed and I wanted to look at the libvirt log to see what happened and this is when we found no log exists... after we manually changed the libvirtd.conf file a libvirt log was created and than we also changed the log level to debug so that we can debug something :)

basically, we can debate the debug log level issue but can we agree that a log should exist and log erros?

See Kashyap's earlier email.  By default libvirt logs to syslog with a
default log level of 3, which logs warnings and errors.

If you are seeing no warnings or errors, then that's a good thing and
under normal circumstances should be sufficient.

Increasing the verbosity to log Info (or Debug) should be something the
system administrator CHOOSES to do, not something a tool like packstack
forces you to do.

See my comment on that bug.  I fully support making it easy for
packstack to increase the verbosity of libvirt logging, but agree with
Dan and others that increasing it by default is make a decision for
sysadmins when they should be making the decision themselves.
