|Summary||0002077: Bring back xdebug.collect_params|
I use trace dumps mostly to:
While having xdebug.collect_params always on is sometimes useful, most of the time parameters are not necessary for my use. Parameters make the trace files much bigger and when greping them they clutter output. Parsing of the trace files might also require more memory and might be slower. Could you consider bringing back xdebug.collect_params setting?
I'm open to paying for implementation of this feature.
I'm a little reluctant adding INI settings again, as I tried so hard getting rid of them. Would adding a new flag to xdebug_start_trace perhaps be an acceptable alternative? I realise that that means you need to call a function at your entry point.
I also would appreciate if you could bring back the xdebug.collect_params setting. I generate xdebug traces from website requests on a regular basis. Without collect_params settings, the traces, with all parameters included, reach sizes up to multiple gigabyte, even if compression is used. A flag to xdebug_start_trace would be no alternative because the trace is started through a cookie (xdebug.start_with_request = "trigger").
Sorry @derick, I missed your reply somehow.
I can't add xdebug_start_trace() because I'm not in total control of the environments I work with. I'm often in the role of "debug guy"/devops guy. I can set up my own php-fpm instance on a server with Xdebug enabled and direct carefully selected traffic to it via a web server ( e.g. based on my IP address), but I'm not able to modify the source code. Sometimes issues happen only on production, and all parties are extremely reluctant to modify application source code there (again, my php-fpm instances with XDebug enabled are always properly secured from 3rd party access).
I understand your concerns about adding INI settings again, but I would like to bring up the convenience factor for users who would like to have the xdebug.collect_params feature like me.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
