Better logging for WCA Admin / WCA Miner

For security reasons we need to be able to log/monitor/audit the actions the user has taken in WCA Miner. The queries used are sensitive in and of themselves as they include the business logic.

In order to connect to the Monitoring framework / the SOC we need regular logging.


- It writes directly to a logfile

- We can configure the location

- We can adjust the loglevel to determine the amount of detail. The amount of detail supported should at one end include all user actions

- We should be able to write (parts) to syslog

- we would like to have some control over the format of the logfile

- Support for logrotate or similar (i.e. should not break when using log-management tools)
