Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1031549
Logging is too verbose for normal operation
Last modified: 2016-07-19 06:36:27 EDT
Description of problem:
IMHO the logging of NetworkManager seems to be too verbose - and especially with tools like 'journalctl -xb' it seems to be taking even too much attention
while it's just being started and nothing really serious is going on there.
I'm not aware I'd be configuring some 'verbosity' level - is it configurable ?
I do not think it's really necessary to see list of all my 30 wi-fi connection,
or vpn connections with each boot.
I think the default should just say - where it's been connected eventually with IP address - the rest is just noise, moreover in many cases written with 'bold' letters for no reason in journalctl.
If a user wants to see more - there should be configurable option for this level of verbosity.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. journalctl -b
In NetworkManager you can configure "level" and "domains" for logging.
Either at startup via command line options, via NetworkManager.conf, or at runtime via DBUS command (or `nmcli general logging`).
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
