    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)

    I have a lot of this filling up my log:
    2011-07-25 14:40:37 [INFO] [LogBlock Consumer] Queue overloaded. Size: 1963
    2011-07-25 14:40:53 [INFO] [LogBlock Consumer] Queue overloaded. Size: 1985

    what is the cause and is it slowing the server down in any way?
  11. Offline


    1. More blocks come to the queue than could be processed. Can be caused by too many players, forest fires and cpu overload.
    2. No, except you get some millions of blocks in there, leaving no ram for the server :D
    3. (you asked not, but you've should :D) double timePerRun and set forceToProcess to 30.
  12. Offline


    strange, I have only 20-30 players online, fire spread is disabled server-wide and cpu usage was about 8-15%

    i'll try setting those options anyway

    i like this plugin and it seems to work fine.
    but today i got some strange Console messages
    does anyone know what this means, why i get those message, and how to stop it?

    SO I'm getting this error saying "Error while fetching connection ....Failed to validate a brand new connection...." That keeps repeating itself. Any thoughts on where I should go with it? I tried finding out how to handle it myself but had no luck
  15. Offline


    Interesting, that bug was only hypothetical, until now.
    Does it come for every consumer run and command, or only sometimes?
  16. Offline


    Im still trying to figure this thing out. I finally got the minecraft hosting to make me a database. I plugged it in last week and the commands now work, but it doesn't look like its ever logging anything. I've tried all commands with no results found even when people are building and breaking around me. Once I got the /lb area command to work and only show 2 results. But I have noticed this coming up alot:

    [LogBlock Consumer] Queue overloaded. Size: 9859 (number gets bigger)

    obviously something is being saved but I cant access anything right? How do I fix this issue? Thanks!

    Either /lb savequeue or check the FAQ how to adjust consumer settings

    Thanks so much, that worked and now I see everything thats being dropped. Do we have to do that everyday or what? I just did /lb savequeue

    Follow the FAQ to adjust your consumer settings.

    My console is disabling Loblock almost after everything is loaded, I tried creating a new databse, it connects to it and says "LogBlock: Version check: Your version is up to date
    LogBlock: Connecting to root@jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/logblock...
    LogBlock: Creating table lb-players."

    Then after the rest load it gets disabled

    Help plz

    Thanks, that setting to false option was the thing that did it in Consumer! Now it seems to be working ok!

    Is this a god setup for a big server?

    delayBetweenRuns: 10
    forceToProcessAtLeast: 0
    timePerRun: 400
    useBukkitScheduler: true
  24. Offline


    Can't say, depends on many things. When you get queue overloaded messages, you have to increase timeperrun further.
  25. Offline


    Its hard to tell, it seems to be consistently every time someone connects. But it happens randomly other times too so I'm not sure what is triggering it. It is very frequent though

    To bad, the video was removed. But thank you for the answer about the changes/yml's thing :)

    Guess you are using a remote mysql server. ping it from your server, guess the ping will be about 1000.
    There is a v2:

    What does bukkitcontrib do for this plugin?
  29. Offline


    Hmm honestly I'm not familiar with it enough to know how to "ping it from my server" Would something within the plugin be causing that? The other plugins I use that access mysql databases on the server don't seem to have any issues with it.
  30. Offline


    and if set delayBetweenRuns from 10 to 5 what diffrence does that make?
  31. Offline


    Providing chest api
    Open putty, connect, and type "ping <ip of your mysql server>"
    The consumer runs twice often :D
