    Version: 1.50​

    LogBlock release are on DevBukkit:

    LogBlock dev builds:

    Please read the installation guide

    I won't port LogBlock myself to mcAPI. Source code is available, so it shouldn't be to difficult for someone else to do it, also I'm still here. so I can answer questions. If there is more than one willing, that's up to you to handle that.

    The reasons I take this step, are the usual: I quit playing Minecraft about 5 months ago and lastly I was struggling to keep up with updates. The developement of Guardian made slow progress, so I fear it won't be ready to fully replace LB in time.

    LogBlock logs block changes into a MySQL database. Block changes can be placed or destroyed block, explosions, burned blocks, sign text changes, chest access, leaves decay etc.
    It can be used as griefer identification tool, to find out who build a particular building, or even roll back changes by certain players. Other purposes can be e.g: Undoing of forest fires
    All additional features are optional, to keep the database as short as possible. All database actions run in their own threads to avoid server lags.
    The use of permissions plugin (or any clone) is possible, but not necessary.
    Uses Spout for chest logging (but it's fully optional, and there is no need for the client mod at all).

    • Logging for block placing, block braking, fire, explosions, leaves decay, signtexts, lava flow and chest content
    • Very mighty commands system, not only allowing to rollback and redo, but also to tp to blockchanges, delete log ingame etc. Full list of commands.
    • Many parameters for lookup/rollback/redo/tp/clearlog commands: Block changes of one ore more player, in a specific area, in a world edit selection, specific block types only, block changes older or newer that a specific date, destroyed/created block only, in a different world and combinations of all these parameters. Full list of parameters.
    • Rebuilding map after importing a backup (/lb redo)
    • Last parameter to use the parameters of the last command
    • Quick ingame lookup of block history a wood pickaxe or a bedrock block.
    • All commands accessible from console (exept tools :D)
    • Custom queries for tools.
    • Different tool modes (lookup, rollback, redo, writelogfile and clearlog)
    • Saves block data like wool color, log type, torch adjustment, etc
    • Multiworld and multiserver support (some servers sharing the same database)
    • BigBrother log import
    • Loggable super pickaxe plugin (not to confuse with WorldEdit's super pickaxe)
    • API
    • Webstats
    Why to use LogBlock:

    Example commands: (thanks to tha d0ctor, read more about commands here)

    /lb rollback player fire since 1d3h – rolls back fire 1 day 3 hours
    /lb rollback player fire since 1d3h area 15 – rolls back fire 1 day 3 hours within a radius of 15 blocks

    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 1h - rolls back thad0ctor 1 hour
    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 1d area 5 – rolls back thad0ctor actions for the last day within 5 blocks
    /lb rollback area 10 since 1h30m - rolls back all modifications within 10 blocks since the list 1 hours and 30 mins
    /lb rollback area 10 before 06.11.2011 - roll back all changes in an area of 1o before June 11th, 2011
    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 05:36:00 - roll back all changes of thad0ctor since 05:36 (server time)

    The result is limited to the 15 newest entrys. Do you want to say that 15 rows aren't fitting?
  3. Offline


    Ok, I didn't know it was limited to 15 results. Now that I know I'm not missing any newer entries its fine. Sometimes on a busy server, the chat can scroll by rather fast.

    Edit: Oh and thanks for the redo command. I'm official switching from BB now.

    That would be a major help: to be able to instantly create log files of all the players data directly from the CMD window!

    Thanks for listening to my request. I am glad we were able to reach a consensus :)

    As "The" only server admin/person who ever checks the logs, would it/is it possible to exclude me from ceratain logging, such as chest access, etc.. mainly for me.. just allow logging of just blocks.

    I'm still getting wrong argument.
    ex: /lb rollback selection 5 minutes
    /lb redo selection 5 minutes
    wrong argument

    same with playerarea, player

    Of course :D
    You likely didn't enable explosions logging.
    Huh, thats new. Does that occour permanently?
    Next release will add a "/lb hide" command.
    "/lb redo" was added in v0.11

    LogBlock works with CraftBukkit #670

    I try to rollback an area that was burned down by lava that someone placed, but every time I roll it back (no matter how far back) the lava comes back and burnes everything down again..... Please help!

    Open config and add 10 and 11 to dontRollback (will add lava also as default).

    I think i've worked out why LogBlock won't work with BigBrother or any other plugin using the same database stuff as you.

    In your main class:

    private Connection getConnection()
    try {
    return DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:jdc:jdcpool");
    } catch (SQLException ex) {
    log.log(Level.SEVERE, "[LogBlock] Can't get a connection", ex);
    return null;
    DriverManager is static so if any two plugins are using it (i.e. the one i'm writing at the moment, or BigBrother) and you get the connection at a later time, it could return the wrong connection. Example of what is happening as i see it:

    1. Logblock starts
    2. Logblock sets up mysql connection but doesn't immediately store the connection instance
    3. My plugin starts
    4. My plugin sets up mysql connection and DOES store the connection instance straight away
    5. Logblock attempts to retrieve connection from DriverManager, gets my plugin's connection instead which is for a different database
    6. Logblock then logs to the wrong database because it has the wrong connection

    I was confused as to why whenever i put my plugin in, logblock started logging to that database instead of its own. I think this may be why, but I could be completely off :) If it is right, would you mind making it so you store your instance of Connection straight after:

    try {
    new JDCConnectionDriver(config.dbDriver, config.dbUrl, config.dbUsername, config.dbPassword);

    Ah, didn't knoe that, but it sounds plausible. Thanks for figuring out. Wondered alredy whether there's something wrong.
    Will fix that, I've no sole claim on MySQL connection :D
  17. Offline


    I found it out while I was making a little plugin last night for my server that logs stuff to a database for my php front end to use. I based the SQL connection stuff roughly off yours and bigbrothers, then made the discovery that they share the DriverManager :p

    Damn indexes.
    Can you execute following query and post the result?
    EXPLAIN SELECT date, replaced, type, signtext, playername FROM `lb-main` LEFT JOIN `lb-main-sign` USING (id) INNER JOIN `lb-players` USING (playerid) WHERE x = 5 AND y = 5 AND z = 5 ORDER BY date DESC LIMIT 15

    Been getting the following message - it's holding steady around 430-500 right now, but I've seen it get as high as 1400.

    Should I be worried? It seems to accompany complaints of lag, but I haven't seen it.

    rbos what have you got your delay set to?

    Dunno why but my LB is very very slow last few past days its have been very fast and gave asnwers instantly but now it gives about 1-2 mins later when i check who destroyed a chunk i tried to clear datebase still very slow

    and there is the error

    Not that good, still not dramatic, but I would advise to shorten the delay in config.
    Go into phpMyAdmin, mysql workbench, console, or whatever you use to configurate your database and execute the query I gave you above. The result may be informativ.
    Will be fixed with next release.

    executed as asked :

    SQL užklausa: EXPLAIN SELECT date, replaced,
    TYPE , signtext, playername
    FROM `lb-main`
    LEFT JOIN `lb-main-sign`
    USING ( id )
    INNER JOIN `lb-players`
    USING ( playerid )
    WHERE x =5
    AND y =5
    AND z =5
    ORDER BY date DESC
    LIMIT 15

    Seems that after I upgraded to 670 (reconmended build) the plugin itself IS working but NO information actually reaches the database. If I place/destroy a block, it says no history while in the console I got no errors:S!
  27. Offline


    I'm way more interested in the result. Should be something like:

    id select_type table type possible_keys key key_len ref rows Extra
     1 SIMPLE lb-main ref coords coords 5 const,const,const 1 Using where; Using filesort
     1 SIMPLE lb-players eq_ref PRIMARY PRIMARY 2 1
     1 SIMPLE lb-main-sign eq_ref PRIMARY PRIMARY 4 1
    Hm... could you try a tnt explosion with at least 100 destroyed blocks?
    If there comes the "Queue overloaded" info, we know the blocks at least arrive in the queue.
