Description Josh Kelley 2015-07-07 21:15:02 UTC
Could the non-IPC log level for "connected to service" and "connection closed" be changed back to 1?

Or is there another, comparably easy way of logging service connections and disconnections, without the clutter of raising the log level for a large part of the Samba system?

I saw commits aad5eeb9b4 and 321404ac25, which changed the log level to clean up "make test"'s output, but from an end user's perspective, I think they should be included. I've always interpreted the default log level 1 as "stuff a sysadmin might want to know in everyday operation," and I've always thought that connections to shares and disconnections from shares fall under this category. It's useful for tracking and auditing purposes, and it's a decent parallel to other services' events, like SSH logons and logoffs, that are also logged by default.
