#
# I found information from Odoo on logging was not very clear. So I complied
# this helpful list and info about Odoo logging.
#
# Information was gleaned from the following sites:
# (The URLs are broken up to fit them in the file)
# - http://www.mindissoftware.com
# /2014/09/07/Odoo-logging-configuration-usage-implementation/
# - https://www.odoo.com/

#
# Odoo uses the Python standard logging library. However, it uses a special
# configuration syntax to configure logging levels for its modules.
#
# It's helpful to know what each level type means, so below is quick list:
#
# Level meanings:
# debug: Debug message for debugging only.
# info: Information message to report important modular event.
# warning: Warning message to report minor issues.
# error: Error message to report failed operations.
# critical: A critical message -- so critical that the module cannot work
#
#
# log_level:
# any value in the list below. Odoo changed the log_level meaning
# here because these level values are mapped to a set of predefined
# 'module:log_level' pairs. These pairs are listed next to the log-level.
# You could get the same result by using the log_handler option
#
#
# LOG LEVEL / log_handler: module:log_level
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# info / [':INFO']
# critical / ['openerp:CRITICAL', 'werkzeug:CRITICAL']
# error / ['openerp:ERROR', 'werkzeug:ERROR']
# warn / ['openerp:WARNING', 'werkzeug:WARNING']
# debug / ['openerp:DEBUG']
# debug_sql / ['openerp.sql_db:DEBUG']
# debug_rpc / ['openerp:DEBUG','openerp.http.rpc.request:DEBUG']
# debug_rpc_answer / ['openerp:DEBUG','openerp.http.rpc.request:DEBUG',

# A word on tuning your Odoo Server
#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# A lot of time has gone in to testing this TKL appliance, and one thing we
# learned while testing was tuning. For all the why we chose these numbers you
# can take a look at he issues on GitHub (links at the botton of this article)
#
# Most of this text here was taken from the Memory Matrix Discussion
# https://github.com/DocCyblade/tkl-odoo/issues/49#issuecomment-148881166
#
# It is important to note that you can run Odoo in threaded mode by setting
# the workers option to 0 however there are some modules that won't work
# and you loose fine grain control of resource management.
#
#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# the --workers is how many new process will be started to perform work or
# (answer requests) The workers have limits upon them set by the limit_xxxxx
# options here in the config file.
#
# The "limit_memory_soft" limit is the amount of ram that when a process
# goes over this limit after it is done with the request it is terminated
# and the memory it was using is freed. This amount goes for each process
#
# The hard limit is the amount of ram that if the process goes over it,
# it WILL terminate right then. (I don't think this is really correct
# because of the PDF issue we had and set this to 1.3 GB and never
# saw a process take this much. but if its below 1.3GB PDF are not created)
#
# The one we need to pay attention to is the limit_memory_soft.
# As these workers will stay alive and hold on to memory until that limit
# is reached. So if you have 5 workers and the soft limit is 256MB you could
# end up with 5 workers each taking 256MB that's 1.25GB of RAM that could
# be taken up. If you only had 1GB of ram you may need to dial back your
# workers or your soft limit.
#
# It's a balancing act of sorts, I am also not sure if keeping the
# workers at say 350 or 400 if there is some caching effect. Not sure
# why it's holding on to the memory.
#
#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# Hardware Matrix for recommended values:
# (Note these are for REAL hardware, Virtual Hardware has it's own
# issues that can arise with too many guest on a host with too many
# CPU cores etc, so remember that when looking at the chart below)
# (One other note that when I tested these, I did use VMware but
# no other VMs where competing for resources)
# (One last note, really. These numbers are to show the relationship
# between the config settings and hardware. We also assume you are running
# the database server on the same server. I know at some point in the
# higher numbers that this would not be the case. These are not numbers
# set in stone nor numbers gotten from Odoo. These are numbers I have
# come up with from the testing I have done. Real world examples if you
# have them would be great and these numbers can and should be updated!

# Heading | Description
# ------------------ | ---------------------------------------------------------
# CPUs | Number of CPU Cores not threads
# Physical | Physical memory, not virtual or swap
# workers | Number of workers specified in config file (workers = x)
# cron | Number of workers for cron jobs (max_cron_threads = xx)
# Mem Per | Memory in MB that is the max memory for request per worker
# Max Mem | Maximum amount that can be used by all workers
# limit_memory_soft | Number in bytes that you will use for this setting
#
# Note: Max Memory if notice is less than total memory this is on purpose. As
# workers process requests they can grow beyond the Mem Per limit so a
# server under heavy load could go past this amount. This is why there
# is "head room" built in.

Infact it is.

I think log-level and log-db should be replaced by log_level and log_db. I read in the past that - is used to split words when defining command line arguments while _ is used to set the same value in the config file. Unfortunately I can't find the exact location in Odoo's doc where this is stated.
