Ethereum (Go) - v1.11.6

Geth v1.11.6 is a maintenance release, fixing some minor issues and adding some log management features.

Log management

Log rotation has landed in geth, via (#26843). Log rotation can be activated using the flag --log.rotate. Additional parameters that can be given are:

  • --log.maxsize to set maximum size before files are rotated,
  • --log.maxbackups to set how many files are retailed,
  • --log.maxage to configure max age of rotated files,
  • --log.compress whether to compress rotated files

The location the logfile(s) can be configured as previously, using the --log.logfile parameter.

A new log output format, logfmt was added (#27001, #26970). It can be enabled using --log.format, which currently supports the options json, logfmt or terminal. (Thus, the --log.json option is now deprecated).

And finally, the flag --vmodule was renamed to --log.vmodule (#27071).


For a full rundown of the changes please consult the Geth 1.11.6 release milestone.
