Title: Record-based Logging (thesis defense).
Most applications employ logging mechanism in order to give evidence about its executions and eventual failures. Most current logging frameworks simply store every string sent to them, often resulting in a log with irrelevant and redundant entries. This wastes space. We will discuss an alternative approach that, in typical cases, will result in reduced log size. The approach logs control flows instead, keeping the generated strings implicit. The strings can be re-generated if needed. While the idea is simple, its realization turned out to meet a number of challenges, which we will discuss during the presentation.
