#72 closed Feature Wish (wontfix)

new config flag: --silence-management : Do not log management access at all

Description

A new configuration flag could be introduced:
--silence-management

Opening and closing management interface (UDS or TCP) is creating log entries already at the very low verbosity level 3. The new flag would deactivate these management activities in all verbosity levels.

Reason: The log should not be bloated up by automated use of management interface. The configuration flag --mute will not work here, because the messages are introduced by "open" and finished with "close" messages.

Is there anybody else besides the original reporter who would like to see this functionality? If not, we may have to close this as "wontfix".

There's a good reason we log access to the management interface :-) - and we already have way too many obscure options for specific corner cases.
