Ruby : write logs into log file synchronously

23 Aug 2013

Most time when I redirect the logs to a log file, I noticed that log are not written to log file in real time (synchronously), rather they will wait and flush a set of logs all together at some time. Its quite difficult for us to debug in this situtaion.

To avoid this, try the below snippet in your code.

$stdout.sync = true

Happy debugging.
