Description Melancholie 2008-07-03 17:23:52 UTC
list=logevents (le) does not have a namespace filter like list=recentchanges
Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2008-07-03 19:05:48 UTC
It used to have one, but it was removed because filtering on namespace killed the database.

With the current db scheme, it may be killing. But I think through the years many valid bugs and requests have come to depend on such filter.

Reopening with dependancy on bug 14711 which requests the actual filterability.

Note that mw_logging has had an index on (log_namespace, log_title) since it was created in r4919. What is causing the kill actually ? (respond on bug 14711 ?)
Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2011-04-11 15:38:50 UTC
There is no (namespace,timestamp) index.
Comment 4 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-04-11 15:40:08 UTC
It would be possible to do a faux NS filter in Miser mode as a middle ground hack...

As for being able to do it efficiently....

r4919 - tables.sql (MediaWiki 1.3A)
>  KEY page_time (log_namespace, log_title, log_timestamp)

r84394 - tables.sql (MediaWiki 1.18alpha)
> CREATE INDEX /*i*/page_time ON /*_*/logging (log_namespace, log_title, log_timestamp);
Comment 6 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-04-11 17:54:34 UTC
Indeed, but you just can't use those skipping the middle field
Comment 7 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-05-13 22:00:39 UTC
Marking later, has no use staying open for the moment

The API side can be reopened when (if?) the core issue is fixed
Comment 8 Andre Klapper 2012-12-21 14:02:01 UTC
[Removing RESOLVED LATER as discussed in . Reopening and setting priority to "Lowest". For future reference, please use either RESOLVED WONTFIX (for issues that will not be fixed), or simply set lowest priority. Thanks a lot!]
