I need to provide a log which might be helpful for root cause identifying. However, the log exceed 30000 characters that I can't add it into my question.

Is there anyway for workaround?


I was asked for the verbose log, which I can hardly see any clues of it. So I don't know which part of the log should be taken out.

Then I came here to see if there is a website or somewhere that I can share this hull log if someone might interest.

But you guys are right, maybe I'd better get back to my problem and do more investigation before asking.

There's no way that entire log is going to be relevant to your question, and there's certainly no way someone here is actually going to look through the entire thing. 30,000 characters is a lot of characters. Is it not possible to summarize it by extracting just a section, or finding the relevant parts of it? – animuson Jan 8 '13 at 4:12
What log are you posting? 30K characters is a LOT for anyone to scroll through. Are all 30K necessary? Perhaps limit it? – Emrakul Jan 8 '13 at 4:12
You want answers to your question, right? Can you expect someone going to read your 30K log to answer your question? What you should do is to help others answer your question. Posting 30K log does the exact opposite.. Ideally, a question should warrant an answer.. – Krishnabhadra Jan 8 '13 at 5:08
Here's a workaround: post a SSCCE. What were you thinking?! – Jack Maney Jan 8 '13 at 5:37
If you really think it's necessary to attach the whole file you can host it somewhere and post a link. – Shadow Wizard Jan 8 '13 at 8:18

No one wants to read 30k+ characters of logfile.

The best solution is to put more time into narrowing down where the problem is and then posting only the relevant portion of the logfile.
