Long action logging


I haven’t dug into the logging processes of Duplicati (which is probably good since it sounds like it’s being rewritten a bit) but I’m wondering if it’s possible to create a log entry while in the middle of a task.

For example, we know certain SQL calls can take a long time (Slow backup -especially deleting unwanted files and creating of bug report) so it might be nice if the logs could still be updated with something as simple as “<time stamp> Still working on it…” so users aren’t left wondering if things have locked up.

This might also help reduce the number of corrupted databases that (I suspect) might be cause by users killing Duplicati in the middle of a long task.


I have not considered that, but I will try to squeeze that part in as it can improve the user experience.
