Log block

From UnrealIRCd documentation wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The log block allows you to configure log files. You may have multiple log blocks.

If you have no log block at all then UnrealIRCd will use a default log block that only logs errors to ircd.log.


log "<filename>" {
        flags {
        maxsize <max-file-size>; /* OPTIONAL */


The filename of your log "<filename>" { block specifies the name of the log file that will be used for logging.


The log::flags specifies which types of information will be in this log.

  • errors: self explanatory
  • kills: logs /kill notices
  • tkl: logs info on *lines (/kline, /zline, etc), shuns and spamfilters (adding/removing/expire)
  • connects: logs user connects/disconnects
  • server-connects: logs server connects/squits
  • oper: logs oper attempts (both failed and successful)
  • sadmin-commands: logs /sa* (samode, sajoin, sapart, etc.) usage
  • chg-commands: logs /chg* (chghost, chgname, chgident, etc.) usage
  • oper-override: logs operoverride usage
  • spamfilter: logs spamfilter matches

maxsize (Optional)[edit]

When the log file reaches a file size of maxsize the log file will be renamed to name-of-log-file.old (overwriting any previous such .old file). You can use K/M/G to specify kilobytes/megabytes/gigabytes.


log ircd.log {
        flags {
        maxsize 10M;

log users.log {
        flags {
        maxsize 10M;
