Chef Client logging in opscode/cookbooks


I just closed COOK-135[1], to have client logs by default go to
STDOUT, since the default behavior is to set up a runit service for
the client, and runit handles stdout already. On clients, you can
change the node attribute chef[:client_log] to “STDOUT” and it will do
the right thing.

If you’re wondering where the logs are from runit services, by default:


Red Hat/CentOS will log to /var/log/chef/client.log as they did before.
