Advanced Persistent Error Log

Project description


Advanced Error Logging for Plone.


  • Why not use the Site Error Log?

    The standard Site Error Log forgets all logs after restart

    There is no search form to search errors by ID

    Only accessible throug ZMI

    It is not possible to save unique errors

    Not possible to get an event, e.g. Email notification, if a new (unique) error occurs.

  • Why use collective.logbook?

    Keeps all logs persistent, also after Zope restarts

    Keeps only unique errors and references new errors to existing errors (if they exist, of course)

    Search Errors by error number

    Nice Front End

    Comes with an RSS and ATOM feed

    You can write a custom event handler to get informed when a new (unique) error occur

    get an error count to see how often an error occured

    good tested (so far)

    transparent to Site Error Log


These instructions assume that you already have a Plone 3 buildout that’s built and ready to run.

Edit your buildout.cfg file and look for the eggs key in the instance section. Add collective.logbook to that list. Your list will look something like this:

eggs =

In the same section, look for the zcml key. Add collective.logbook here, too:

zcml = collective.logbook


Logbook: http://localhost:8080/plone/@@logbook

RSS: http://localhost:8080/plone/@@logbook_rss.xml

ATOM: http://localhost:8080/plone/@@logbook_atom.xml
