Re: [Bacula-devel] patch: bat trunk: improve joblog formatting
Yes, ordering by jobid would nicely show all current jobs first and also
avoid using a multi-field ordering.
Having a single field order could also allow making table headers
clickable and sortable, like Marc proposed (with multi-field there's no
way to return to the original ordering without using dirty tricks).
I like it.
One caveat: AFAIK ordering by jobid orders by queuing time, while the
current ordering (by starttime,jobid) gives you jobs by effective start.
I don't care much, but perhaps others have different needs.
What do you think ?
Still, I wonder why you want to keep around old jobs who newer ran,
instead of just deleting them. That would keep your display nice and
Seriously, I'm fairly new to bacula and perhaps there's some useful
trick to learn here.
