How to log spamfilters?

Hello everybody,

my question is maybe a little bit out of matter, but I think you can help. I remarked that data related to nicknames filtered by the spamfilter were *not* logged at all in the ircd.log file: neither the nickname, nor the ident, not the real name. The only information I could get was something like "Spamfilter added for ip blah with reason blah .." and that's all. Impossible to know who got the ip blah. Is that possible to set up something in the unrealircd.conf, or anywhere else, in order to get the full information?

Thanks in advance for your answers,

I think I found:

log "ircd.log" {
flags { spamfilter;
} }

The section log/flags must contains the word "spamfilter", indeed.

Moreover, it appears that the data related to the filtered connection are only available on the server on which the filtering occured. As my server is in a network with other ones, I just understood why I could not get the whole data from my ircd.log.

Hope this will help
