Log file performance impact

Log file performance impact

Post by raphael reic » Sat, 29 Mar 1997 04:00:00

Does anyone  know if generating log files impacts performance?

If so:
(1) Is this true for all web servers, or only those under high loads?

(2) Does anyone have a rough idea of what the benefit is of turning
logging off (e.g., percentage increase in performance)?



1. Q: performance impact of log. interf.

Hi everyone ...

I'm running the webserver for our university. Now I have requests about
virtual web hosting. This would require multiple logical interfaces
configured. Before I agree to this service I would like to know, if
there's any performance impact if I would configure a number of 16 - 32 of
these logical interfaces.

Please send answers also via email.

Thanx in advance ... Frank
