Re: server-side logging of query errors?

It's a pity!
This could ease debugging in many cases, without the need to change the client (i.e. PHP/Perl/Python code which sends the queries, and we suspect that some of them are bogus).


It would be a mild security risk; a malicious
(or just stupid, see Hanlon's razor) user could spam your server with
malformed requests until the logging disk runs full, at which point
the daemon would suspend operations until space is freed.

I don't think it's a valid argument - the same is true right now for "general query log". Any stupid/malicious user can produce loads of queries and fill the disk if one has "general query log" enabled.

In short, anyone enabling any logging should consider what limitations it brings.


Maybe one of the proxies out there has support for such logging, I'm
not really familiar with any of them.
