I am not a ColdBox user but have been looking at LogBox as a solution
to my problem.
I have two load-balanced web servers that external users log into.
Sometimes they have trouble logging in. I'd like to be able to verify
exactly what credentials they are using to log in. I am thinking about
adding logging to the login process to capture this. But I don't want
it in a log file or database, and I don't want it logging all the
time. So LogBox seems like a perfect solution - runtime configurable
and I don't have to log to a database or file.
My first thought was to log to a scope and then have an admin page
display that data as it comes in - so I can "watch" users as they log
in. But unfortunately there is no administration area on this
webserver. So I am thinking about logging over the network back to our
intranet application, where I can easily place an admin page to view
Which leads me to the SocketAppender. But I don't quite understand
what I would need to do on the other end to receive the messages?
Any ideas or pointers appreciated, thanks.
