Levels recorded in error.log

Just installed Kong EE and trying to develop guidelines for managing it, including how to respond to entries written to errors.log. I found this document on the NGINX logging levels, and I see that the default setting OOB for Kong is ‘notice’. My question is whether ‘notice’ level entries can be ignored (and just focus on ‘warn’ and above), or does ‘notice’ warrant attention, as well?


Yes, you should be able to safely ignore notice-level logs. A default log_level at notice is historically helpful for development purposes (it is the value used by print), but in fact, none (or very few) notice logs are printed by Kong at all.
