I am seeing 1G log files created per day.
4721929 lines that have ' session: start'
1153101 lines that do not.

That is 4.7M lines of logs that end up in our splunk system that provide no
known useful information.

Does anyone else see this on their systems?
Does anyone use the Grouper Loader process?

Any hints about how to make the logging better? ( Other than track down the
line of code and wrapper it with an if block. )

Subject: [grouper-users] loader log is very chatty and full of lines of
questionable value....

I am trying to use the Loader process to sync some data into grouper from
LDAP. ( That part is working as far as I can tell after I gave it enough ram
to not fall over. :) )

However, in the grouper_error.log (for where the loader is logging) I am
seeing a lot of lines like :
2017-08-16 14:25:04,783: [DefaultQuartzScheduler_Worker-7] INFO - - [9a3e8...c35b,'GrouperSystem','application'] session:
start (0ms) "

And by a lot I mean ( Just from today's file...):

$ wc -l grouper_error.log ; grep -c ' session: start' grouper_error.log; grep
-vc ' session: start' grouper_error.log;
3135034 grouper_error.log ( Total lines in the file)
2379686 ( Lines that are ' session: start' lines, 75% of the file!)
755517 ( Lines that are not ' session: start' lines )

Can anyone tell me how to suppress ONLY those lines?
I might be wrong but other lines that say things like "add member" ,
"delete member" (etc...) look like they are being logged from the same
location. [ AKA: " INFO" ]

Could any explain why those log statements are there?
I really don't understand what they are trying to communicate.
