I have a previous question and to get closer to a solution I want to enable Mosquitto broker logging on Windows 7.
Originally I have started the broker manually as follows:
mosquitto -p 1883 -v
-v means verbose console logging. But this does not provide enough information, only the following line in case of my problem:
1486293976: Socket error on client <unknown>, disconnecting.
I have tried doing what is described in this answer. Here is the config file's logging part:
# Note that if the broker is running as a Windows service it will default to
# "log_dest none" and neither stdout nor stderr logging is available.
# Use "log_dest none" if you wish to disable logging.
# If using syslog logging (not on Windows), messages will be logged to the
# "daemon" facility by default. Use the log_facility option to choose which of
# local0 to local7 to log to instead. The option value should be an integer
# value, e.g. "log_facility 5" to use local5.
# Types of messages to log. Use multiple log_type lines for logging
# multiple types of messages.
# Possible types are: debug, error, warning, notice, information,
# none, subscribe, unsubscribe, websockets, all.
# Note that debug type messages are for decoding the incoming/outgoing
# network packets. They are not logged in "topics".
# Change the websockets logging level. This is a global option, it is not
# possible to set per listener. This is an integer that is interpreted by
# libwebsockets as a bit mask for its lws_log_levels enum. See the
# libwebsockets documentation for more details. "log_type websockets" must also
# be enabled.
# If set to true, client connection and disconnection messages will be included
# in the log.
# If set to true, add a timestamp value to each log message.
In this case I have started the broker as follows:
mosquitto -p 1883
-v option would override the config file with the default config so I have left that out. But I see no logging on the console.
stdout I have tried to log into a file, and changed the configuration as follows:
log_dest file d:\mosquitto.txt
I have created the file manually and started the broker in the same way but no avail.
I do not get any log message if I do not use the
How should it be done properly?
