Fast, Low Memory Drupal 5 Watchdog Module

This is a drop-in replacement for Drupal 5.19's watchdog.module which makes your Drupal 5 site use less memory and may even make it faster.

If this sounds interesting, please feel free to install this and try it out. If it works for you, you might be interested in downloading my other low memory modules as well.

Installation (patch version)

The same patch works for Drupal versions 5.2–5.19, since Drupal's watchdog.module is the same in all versions. If you're on a command line, you can install this low memory watchdog module by switching into the drupal installation directory (running ls should show index.php and cron.php), and running:

wget -O -|bzcat|patch -p0
