    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)

    Well, sounds only good at first view.
    That's exactly the reason. Technically it would only need to add a config entry. But I won't exclude players from be logged due to a simple rule: LogBlock logs everyone! (except the /lb hide command, at which I'm not very proud of) I saw enough players (and mods) who decided to run amok as a farewell present.
    Thanks :). I love the discussions:
    - "Hey, you griefed here!"
    - "Oh, that wasn't me, must be a mistake. I would never grief"
    - "The log says you destroyed wood here ten minutes ago"
    - "I'm sorry, I let me repair that"

    what does the dumbDroppedLog do anyway? u said to disable it to fix an issue
    i am running CB670 and 0.12c had the same issue i disabled that dumbDroppedLog thing but is it safe to do that? will it still log as normal
  4. Offline


    It toggles whether log is dumped to a file before deleting (log that is older than keepLogDays).

    ok ok so its safe

    Released v0.13
    Reworked config, your old won't work. Delete or rename before updating.
    The entries are grouped to meaningful sections.
    Due to complaining about the incomprehensible (?) url entry, I split it up to tree entries named: host, port and database.
    Due to senselessness I removed the following entries: removeToolBlock, the logAs entries, driverand usePermissions.
    Added the following config entries: logBlockCreations, logBlockDestroyings, port, host, database and useBukkitScheduler.
    Renamed some entries to be better understandable without having to look into the reference.
    dumpDroppedLog -> dumpDeletedLog
    replaceAtRollback -> replaceAnyway
    worldNames -> loggedWorlds
    worldTables -> tables

    New commands sytem (halfway done)
    Kills loging nealy done, needs only some bugfixing.

    In your signature, you spelled iConomy wrong.

    Any table other than "lb-players" is empty after server restart.

    All looks fine:
    Minecraft_2011-04-14_06-24-08.png  localhost  minecraft  lb-main  phpMyAdmin 3.3.7deb5build0.png

    But after server restart:
    Minecraft_2011-04-14_06-25-43.png  localhost  minecraft  phpMyAdmin 3.3.7deb5build0.10.10.png

    Why? What's wrong this my config?

    cb670 + lb 0.13

    Same issue here, but with CB:674.
    Update: Any value for "keepLogDays:" other than -1 results in removal of data. I'll miss those logs.

    Could you explain what the /lb hide does? I am looking for a lighter alternative to big brother and one thing I didn't see was an Ignored Player List. For example, out of that about 20 unique users we have per day, 4 of them I know personally IRL(I was the manager of one at a restaurant!). These 4 also place and destroy the most amount of blocks, one is an admin and can spawn them for project. It would be great to not log the people that I trust for a performance boost and smaller database size. I could probably cut the database in half since I trust many of the old-timers.

    Also, I am sorry if this was already discussed but unfortunately we have what appears to be a lesser known forum solution powering these threads. There is no "Search this thread" feature, at least not in a place that makes visual sense. I posted about it here and recommend you do the same.

    well that could be an issue, but as I'm the head admin and doing most of the major restructuring with worldedit you could drop that logging ;-)

    But I agree it was just a suggestion, don't bother

    I found it: Due to an inclicit type convert from long to integer, any value for keepLogDays larger than 24 results in a negative threshold (which lays in the future).
    I'm really sorry for your log, deleted by only one missing letter, I may cry :'(.

    Maybe godsyn has dumbDeletedLog: true and can import the dumb.

    The message "Cleared out table xyz. Deleted xyz entries." has a display error and show the count of rows insteed of the count of deleted rows.

    /lb hide makes LB temporarily ingnoring your actions.

    hey, is there a way to restore the Map with LogBlock? I had my Map on a RAMDisk, and the Disk is crashed today and i only had a 2 weeks old backup. Is there a way to restore the map with Logblock? The MySQL Tabel is up to date, with the changes which is lost now...

    Sorry for bad English.

    Es wird zwar ein paar Lücken geben, aber im Großen und Ganzen sollte das funktionieren.

    Can someone explain or recommend to me a good delay time. I have a dedicated server 2.8Ghz, 3GB ram, up to 12-15 active players at a time.

    Also, my default config had keepLogDays: -1 , does that mean negative one as in none or infinity or something else?

    Thanks in advance for your input and suggestions
  18. Offline


    -1 essentially means disabled, so logs are kept until you change that setting.

    Haut so hin, bis auf ein paar Fehler, aber die sind verschmerzbar. Thanks! ;)

    How does this compare to bigbrother in features and performance? (And has anyone benchmarked the two?)

    Seems like an yaml syntax error. Parse the whole file:
    delay: 6 should work.
    keeplogDays: -1 means automatic log clearance is disabled and you are completely on the save side.

    It's saved all delay seconds.
    Something is wrong with the bukkit scheduler anyway, otherwise I hadn't to implement an alternative timer.
    Set useBukkitScheduler to false, to use the alternative timer.
