How to stop ActiveRecord logs temporarily in heavy queries
When I’m writing a heavy query rake task or just running something in the
console that does a lot of updates, and i want to output something it gets lost
in all the query logs output.
So I looked around for a convinent way to temporarily stop the output for just
this method, then I found that you could access the active record logger object
ActiveRecord::Base.logger object, and it has many options that you
can play with, here’s some options:
Completly silence logs in a block
Change logger level Logger has quite a few levels, and they are convieniently named with symbols that can be used.
Qouted from the debugging rails guide, in the logger levels section
The available log levels are:
:unknown, corresponding to the log level numbers from 0 up to 5 respectively.
here’s how to change the values
silence method this doesn’t restore the old value after a blog,
so if you plan to restore the old value then you need to save it in a variable
before changing it
