Previously, services for OpenStack Compute and other OpenStack components ran in debug mode by default. With this update, the CONFIG_DEBUG_MODE configuration parameter has been added. When this parameter is set to 'y', all OpenStack services will run in debug mode. By default, debug mode is disabled.

Comment 2 Xavier Queralt 2014-01-13 17:16:03 UTC
By default debug and verbose are set to false in the nova package. In bug 958152 packstack was updated to change both values to true.

I also think that using the debug level is too much for a production environment (verbose should be enough) but it should be fixed in packstack.

Comment 3 Martin Magr 2014-01-20 10:36:10 UTC
Packstack is not installer for production, so leaving debug is OK.

Comment 4 Jeff Dexter 2014-01-22 21:44:12 UTC
From a GSS perspecitve this is still a bug.  Customers are still going to install openstack using packstack, I am currently downloading 5.6GB of log files from a controller from a 3 node setup.
