You’re exactly correct Isak! Thanks.

The logging functionality worked as it should in webrick. Is seems
screwed up in Mongrel. I’ll swap to using webrick in development (and
try to
find out where/how to let the Mongrel team about this).

Interestingly I noted that with webrick the logging doesn’t come out on
the console, but rather I had to open a second iTerm and tail the log
itself. Perhaps there is a “script/server webrick” setting I could use
to enable logging to console if I went looking.



I’ve had no trouble disabling Rails logging using mongrel.

In fact, I specifically do what you asked, turn off the SQL logging in
development. I do it with these lines in my development.rb:

ar_logger = config.logger.clone
ar_logger.level = Logger::INFO
ActiveRecord::Base.logger = ar_logger

Works fine for me in Rails 2.1. I believe it used to work fine for me
in Rails 1.x too. Using mongrel yeah, no problem.

So I’m not sure what problem you’re having, but I don’t think it’s
universal to mongrel.
