In another thread I presented a simple solution for backing up and deleting log files. I'm considering creating a more advanced version that would be more flexible. Problem is, I'm not a high level player, and I don't use logs much. I'm wondering what would be useful to people, so I'm asking for some insight about how you use your logs, and especially how and when you backup or delete logs and start a fresh one. My first solution is best used, at most, once per day (because I didn't deal with the date AND time, so you can overwrite the same day if not paying attention). More likely backing up once per week or month, something along those lines. I'm thinking something like a 'snapshot' log, so you could turn on for a fight, then back up a 'snapshot' of just that fight, including naming it beyond just the date and character. so...Do YOU? -Periodically back up logs? -Log just a certain fight or event more than one in a day? -Log specific things you'd like to name specific things? Also... -Are there specifics I should keep in mind to make the logs more interoperable with parsing software you may use? GamParse and the like? -My basic backups are being named in the style 2021-09-01-Name_server.txt. Which nicely orders them by date. Anything else I should consider in the naming? -Anything else you'd like to mention or opine about on this topic?
