Database logs management.


Sometimes, when using sandboxes for testing, it makes sense to enable the general log, either during initialization or for regular operation. While you can do that with --my-cnf-options=general-log=1 or --my-init-options=--general-log=1, as of version 1.4.0 you have two simple boolean shortcuts: --init-general-log and --enable-general-log that will start the general log when requested.

Additionally, each sandbox has a convenience script named show_log that can easily display either the error log or the general log. Run ./show_log -h for usage info.

For replication, you also have show_binlog and show_relaylog in every sandbox as a shortcut to display replication logs easily.
