I would like to start using logger:
in new code in the AG codebase. It has a number of advantages over using print:
You can leave debugging code in place, and just disable it
for normal operation. If a user has problems, we could
define a mechanism by which debug output is reenabled for
submission in a bug report
Debugging code can be selectively enabled. If I'm hacking
on a new datastore, I can enable verbose debugging for
that code but leave everything else the same.
Multiple logging mechanisms are possible - stdout, files,
syslog, NT event logs, etc. This will become important
as we start making NT services out of system components,
where you lose stdout as a possibility for seeing debug info.
The logger module will be part of python 2.3. Until then it is available as
a separate package at the second URL above.
We can make the installation of the windows version part of an automated
install of a set of dependent packages.
