OS X postgresql logging

Posted on 2014-08-20

I'm using 10.8 and trying to get PG to log to /Library/PostgreSQL so I can view logs in Console.

First, is this dumb, as in too-busy will miss some things?
Second, will log_rotation_size will work as set?

Generally I love the PG documentation, but this is getting annoying.

Thanks all.

    What do you want to log? Query logs will be massive, so maybe use builtin log management and not syslog (aka Console)
