hi tanks
with some new scripting to run some servers i screwed up the timestamps in the logfiles!
some weird coding replaces the time and date entries now:

starting bzfs with:
bzadmin callsign@server:port 1>>log.txt 2>&1
i get:

Code: Select all

[1;24r[18;1H*** '' joined the game as Observer
bzadmin -ui stdout callsign@server:port 1>>$log 2>&1 (or >> log.txt)
i get:

Code: Select all

*** '' joined the game as Observer.
I got the -ts option in the config file with the loaded

anybody an idea how to get back the

Code: Select all

2009-10-06 12:12:12:' joined the game as Observer
BIG thanks in advance for your input!

Code: Select all

these look very close to screwed up colorcodes, and i have no idea how they got in there nor how to fix this. this is just what it looks to me.

possible solution: turn off bash coloring (i dont think thats it, but it looks kinda close to me)

The solution would be to not use the curses UI. Using bzadmin for logging is a bad idea. If the server crashes, bzadmin goes into an infinite loop and will consume all available CPU time.

I also have no idea what a bzfs plugin (logDetail) and a bzfs config option (-ts) has to do with bzadmin. The logDetail plugin does it's own logging information, so you won't get messages like "' joined the game as Observer". You will get something like "PLAYER-JOIN 5:blast #6 BZid:180 OBSERVER IP: VERIFIED GLOBALUSER ADMIN"
