Hi David,

the same thing has been haunting me with regards to another Pylons app, but I finally figured it out: pastedeploy won't by default read the config file to configure the logger when run from mod_wsgi. In order for this to happen, we'll have to amend the launcher script for CKAN:

from paste.deploy import loadapp
config_filepath = os.path.join(instance_dir, config_file)
from paste.script.util.logging_config import fileConfig
application = loadapp('config:%s' % config_filepath)

That will allow us to configure a logger like this:

# Logging configuration
keys = root, ckan

keys = file

keys = generic

level = INFO
handlers = file

level = DEBUG
handlers = file
qualname = ckan

class = handlers.RotatingFileHandler
formatter = generic
level = NOTSET
args = ('/var/log/ckan/de.log', 'a', 2048, 3)

format = %(asctime)s %(levelname)-5.5s [%(name)s] %(message)s

I'll take a few minutes tomorrow to adapt the other ckan instances. That should give us a clearer picture, especially with regards to common API errors - and maybe wrt out current performance problems.
