    LogBlock release are on DevBukkit:

    LogBlock dev builds:

    Please read the installation guide

    I won't port LogBlock myself to mcAPI. Source code is available, so it shouldn't be to difficult for someone else to do it, also I'm still here. so I can answer questions. If there is more than one willing, that's up to you to handle that.

    The reasons I take this step, are the usual: I quit playing Minecraft about 5 months ago and lastly I was struggling to keep up with updates. The developement of Guardian made slow progress, so I fear it won't be ready to fully replace LB in time.

    LogBlock logs block changes into a MySQL database. Block changes can be placed or destroyed block, explosions, burned blocks, sign text changes, chest access, leaves decay etc.
    It can be used as griefer identification tool, to find out who build a particular building, or even roll back changes by certain players. Other purposes can be e.g: Undoing of forest fires
    All additional features are optional, to keep the database as short as possible. All database actions run in their own threads to avoid server lags.
    The use of permissions plugin (or any clone) is possible, but not necessary.
    Uses Spout for chest logging (but it's fully optional, and there is no need for the client mod at all).

    • Logging for block placing, block braking, fire, explosions, leaves decay, signtexts, lava flow and chest content
    • Very mighty commands system, not only allowing to rollback and redo, but also to tp to blockchanges, delete log ingame etc. Full list of commands.
    • Many parameters for lookup/rollback/redo/tp/clearlog commands: Block changes of one ore more player, in a specific area, in a world edit selection, specific block types only, block changes older or newer that a specific date, destroyed/created block only, in a different world and combinations of all these parameters. Full list of parameters.
    • Rebuilding map after importing a backup (/lb redo)
    • Last parameter to use the parameters of the last command
    • Quick ingame lookup of block history a wood pickaxe or a bedrock block.
    • All commands accessible from console (exept tools :D)
    • Custom queries for tools.
    • Different tool modes (lookup, rollback, redo, writelogfile and clearlog)
    • Saves block data like wool color, log type, torch adjustment, etc
    • Multiworld and multiserver support (some servers sharing the same database)
    • BigBrother log import
    • Loggable super pickaxe plugin (not to confuse with WorldEdit's super pickaxe)
    • API
    • Webstats
    Why to use LogBlock:

    Example commands: (thanks to tha d0ctor, read more about commands here)

    /lb rollback player fire since 1d3h – rolls back fire 1 day 3 hours
    /lb rollback player fire since 1d3h area 15 – rolls back fire 1 day 3 hours within a radius of 15 blocks

    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 1h - rolls back thad0ctor 1 hour
    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 1d area 5 – rolls back thad0ctor actions for the last day within 5 blocks
    /lb rollback area 10 since 1h30m - rolls back all modifications within 10 blocks since the list 1 hours and 30 mins
    /lb rollback area 10 before 06.11.2011 - roll back all changes in an area of 1o before June 11th, 2011
    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 05:36:00 - roll back all changes of thad0ctor since 05:36 (server time)

    How do I see info about players killing animals? I have logKillsLevel set to ANIMALS.

    EDIT: I just figured it out by looking at the mysql database. It doesn't show location of killing though. Will you add it in the future?

    Thanks for a great plugin BTW!

    I did a fresh install of logblock on craftbukkit R1 everything installed correctly and the tables were created in the DB but it is not logging any data in the table except for lb_players. I have the world listed in the config in the loggedworlds bit and i have pastebinned the world.yml were you can see that logging is enabled.

    - world
    - world_nether
    - world_the_end

    Any ideas?

    I think I have a bug report here, When a player with creeper in there name joins and you try to roll back Creeper the mob it trys to rollback the player creeper, Anything I can do to fix?

    Location were added in a recent dev build
    Try "/lb queuesize" or "/lb savequeue"
    Yeah, um, no. I didn't thought there were really active playeres with these names.
    Only thing you can do is using area for creeper rollbacks.

    Do you plan to fix on a later build?

    Thank you for a fantastic plugin ! Its been amazingly helpful so far.

    One question I have, is there a way to limit the database size ? or delete stored data after x amount of time ?

    I have seen these options in the config file

    enableAutoClearLog: false auto: - world "world" before 365 days all - world "world" player lavaflow waterflow leavesdecay before 7 days all - world world_nether before 365 days all - world world_nether player lavaflow ghast before 7 days all - world "world" player diddiz all

    However I am unsure what to adjust, and how that will affect logging and DB size.

    Hope someone can help !

    Hey, I found out what's causing the /yes command not to work. It won't work with the latest version of WorldEdit.

    I get this error every time I attempt to run '/lb rollback *' I also don't get any block changes when I right-click with the wooden pickaxes. The MySQL is up and running.

    After awhile, LogBlock just stops writing/reading the MySQL database and fails to function. It used to work fine before, but now the only way I can get LB to work again is restart the server every so often (Which it then says [INFO] [LogBlock] Remaining queue size: 47483 and forces the dump.) After the restart, everything is fine until 30 minutes or so when it stops working again. Has this happened to anyone else before? If it helps, Dynmap isn't rendering anymore like it used to (it's EXTREMELY slow)

    I'm using OpenJDK 1.7.0 with Ubuntu Server 11.10.

    Does LogBlock grab the time from the Minecraft server or the database server for writing timestamps in logs?
    I currently get timestamps that are different to my Minecraft server time.

    This will be fixed with guardian.
    Basically, this will delete all log after 365 days, and lavaflow, waterflow and leavesdecay already after 7 days.
    Check your world configs.
    MC server
    Writing log to db requires cpu.
    You can give LB a higher priority by increasing consumer.forceToProcess up to 1000.
    You have to add your world to loggedWorlds in config.
    I'll check that.
    Check server.log.

    Hi guys,

    That's what I have it at; it's been working perfectly since I installed it back in late July. It's just recent until it started doing things like this. Could've it been that I updated to 1.7.0 JDK?
  21. Offline


    This probably won't help you much since I have nothing to support this but for some reason Chest Logging seems to be very spotty. It appears to only work 5-10 minutes after the server is started, but then just stop logging. I have tested this a few times and know that after the server is on for awhile it will just stop chest logging. I do not use spout.

    LogBlock still works flawlessly on everything else though, so thanks!

    How do i make it so that in the config folder password is set to false? If i can't do that, how do i set up a password on phpmyadmin on a mac? I don't know how and cannot use log block without this. Please respond fast

    How do i make it so i can use log block? The tables were created and the /lb command works but when i right/left click with bedrock/wood pick it does nothing. I do not have a permissions plugin so how would i get this to work? PLEASE REPLY SOON

    Update to dev #84+
    Try "/lb savequeue", if it doesn't help, consider installing spout, the the server jar is required.
    password: ''
    (notice the two single quotes)
    Maybe. Try if you can get a mysql server at localhost.
    Add your world to logged world.
    "/lb logging" helps to figure out the world, names are case sensitive.

    It's always been localhost. I host my MySQL server on the same box as the minecraft server.

    It only seems to save the queue when I stop the serve, the Queue overload only shows when I stop i, and when I start again it needs to import the dump.

    Edit: I'm going through my logs to figure out what's going on. Could my JVM settings be effecting this? I'm noticing this around the same time my mods reporting LB stopped working:

    2012-01-06 23:00:13 [SEVERE] Received string length longer than maximum allowed (36 > 32)

    Other than this, LogBlock just seems to stop responding after awhile. All the commands still work, just when you try to look something up, it never returns anything. It's not spitting out any errors in to console, either.

    So many edits. Just adding info as I go, sorry. Here's my MySQL status. The avg is much lower than what it used to be. It used to be around 50 per second.

    How large is your main table?
    Maybe it's just to big to keep the indices in memory so for each inser i/o is required.

    Nah, MySQL server isn't affected by jvm.
    Try to increase mysql key buffer size, it's somewhere in the mysql config, but I continously forget the entry names.
    Don't think so, but if, I'd like to hear about so a could add it to supporting plugins :D
    Hm, that's not intended. Give them logblock.ignoreRestrictions permission as workaround.
