Output view: group identical entries (especially Background Fetches)

Gxost 6 months ago • updated 6 months ago 6

Output window is flooded with identical successful automatic fetches. It can be solved by grouping identical records into something like "Fetch (background) (5 times)".

I think the suggested grouping would only be useful for background fetches. What would you think of instead auto-removing successful fetch entries?

What if there were failed background fetches (some connection problems) and then successful fetches? You'll always see one successful fetch after a bunch of not successful?

"Grouping" is not for a foldable group of records, but for a single record with number of repetitions. I.e. successful fetch was done 5 times. The same can be done for not successful background fetches and they are identical.

Easiest way would probably be to hide all successful Fetch entries, so you would only see failed entries.

But what if after failed background fetch there was successful one? If you remove all successful background fetches, user can think there are some problems with fetching though they are gone.

Right; after a successful fetch, failed entries could be removed as well. But now this overall won't be easier than grouping.

Ok. If main goal "prevent flooding with useless messages" is reached then it's ok.
