Dear All !

We want to use the IOC log facility and during the test phase 
we decided to make some modification. Before we do this, ask 
YOU for comment. 

regards,

The proposal:

> 
> About IOCLoger:

> Introduce:

>    The management for ioclog message is client/server mode. A server 
> can connect several different clients (ioc(s)),The Logging System

Thats OK. But we want to use separate log files one per IOC.

> The IOC log client can be disabled ,issuing the command
>                                 iocLogDisable=1       

According a code: It doesn't work, while the iocLogDisable
variable is declared as 'LOCAL' not a 'GLOBAL' one. (As I see the code
of R3.13, this bug is not there.)

But if I insert this code before iocInit I have no chence to restart
it with useing iocLogDisable=0 commmand. I prefeare 4 commands instead 
of one variable set:

iocLogClientStart - starts or restarts the ioclogclient if dosn't run
iocLogClientStop  - stop (kill) the iocLogClient
iocLogEnable	  - disable the sending of iocLog messages to the Server.
iocLogDisable	  - enable sending the log messages

The envinroment variables:
>         EPICS_IOC_LOG_FILE_NAME=/applic/log/iocLog.text

usenig as a direcory name, and separate files for IOC-s
>         EPICS_IOC_LOG_FILE_LIMIT=1000000

keepeing it as a limit /ioc-s.

> 
> Once the file is written fully, it will be  overwrite by new messages
> from the beginning of the file.

Ok. but needed a possibility to inform the system manager about...

Please send the comments to me: csuka@heras1.desy.de
