7.4 Log File Format

The master currently stores each logfile in a single file, which may have a standard compression applied.

The format is a special case of the netstrings protocol - see The text in each netstring consists of a one-digit channel identifier followed by the data from that channel.

The formatting is implemented in the LogFile class in buildbot/status/, and in particular by the merge method.
