Ceki Gulcu commented on LBCLASSIC-169:

How did you go about the normalization? Normalizing the level would not buy you anything as its just a field, a reference to the level form the event table to the level table would take just as much space. The same is probably true also for markers but at a lesser degree. Normalizing loggers is a different matter and would probably gain significant space. However, you would need to find out the id of each logger which would cost a database lookup, unless of course you start caching the logger references.

Reserving 8 columns for the arguments seems very reasonable.

> I additionally normalized a session entity wich consists of the Thread
> name and the MDC... these don't change for a lot of log messages and
> it's nicer to have them all together. Some special MDC values (node,
> slot, version, client, and reference) are stored into separate
> columns, the rest is stored into a map.

That's pretty smart.

I think the scope of your proposal is quite different than Tomasz' original request.

>            Priority: Minor
> ch.qos.logback.classic.db.DBAppender uses hard-coded table names for logging events: logging_event, logging_event_property and logging_event_exception. Allowing to change these default names has two benefits:
> * There are systems where database table names must follow some naming conventions (prefixes, using underscores vs. camel case)
> * One could create several Db appenders, each operating on different set of tables (for performance reasons or more fine grained logging and filtering)
> Each table name would be configured using a property in logback.xml. Default values for table names would be the same as present ones to maintain backward compatibility. If you are interested in this feature let me know, I can implement it and provide a patch.
