Subject Re: REST GridCacheCommandHandler writes ERROR in log in caseofbaduser input
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2019 16:26:52 GMT

1. Unfortunately, it's complicated:
- With JDBC, we don't really offer complete reasoning for a problem,
*especially* if it is Ignite internal problem or expectations mismatch,
which is frequent case.
- With ODBC, we don't have ways to offer full Java stack trace to client,
neither expectations that client will display them anywhere.
- With HTTP client will usually disconnect as soon it sees 500 status code,
and will swallow error messages even if we had them.
- With other platforms' clients I assume we will lose error messages almost

In short this will mean that error messages will be unrecovered when people
come with their issues but they have default logging.

2. Malfunctioning client is usually a case for alert. Most of Ignite
installations are single-purpose, and if there are errors in log there must
be problems with this sole purpose.

3. It's hard to remove noise but keep useful information. Maybe we could
throttle such messages?

We could try and create an IEP about those logging concerns.
