Writing Log CSV (Efficiently)

Hello Guys,

Thanks for the advice on this one. I'm running Debian Linux as an OS, if
that makes any major differences. That inbuilt CSV stuff looked pretty tidy,
as does the logging. I'd be keen to learn a little more about that
performance wise though.

The log at its highest rate of write may be looking at an operation a
second, I've not got much experience with this kind of thing so I'm not sure
if that's 'a lot' or not, it just seems like it at the moment. It might not
get as busy as that, I'm not sure and its difficult to simulate as this
isn't likely to be a steady flow of traffic, they'll come in big fat lumps
every now and then.

Thanks,

Rob

Really?  I've found it to be a dog in heavy logging situations.
