In this extension, "Debug" means standard information being written into the "debug.log" file. If  your server has  Magento 2 installed on it and space is qwindling, this extension will be extremely useful for you. With this module you will have an additional option in the admin panel, that will allow you to disable writing into the "debug.log" file and save space on your server.

By default, Magento writes a lot of actions into the "var\log\debug.log" file. With time, this file becomes huge and occupies a lot of space on the server. Usually, when development is finished, these logs are not needed. Disable Debog extension provides an opportunity to disable it.

When the extension is installed, you need to go by the following path: Stores -> Configuration -> Advanced -> Developer. In the "Debug" section  a new item will appear that is called "Turn off". It means, that standard information will not be written into the "debug.log" file, when the value of this field is set to "yes". So, you just need to switch it on, save the configuration, and clear the cache.

Current extension provides you a small list of features:

  • enable or disable the logs writing into "debug.log" file.
  • space saving on the server.

So, in conclusion, "Disable Debug" is a very simple module, but can be useful with space saving on your server, when standard Magento writing into "debug.log" is not needed. But use it wisely.
