[off-topic] Server-side IRC channel logging? (not statistics)

I recently set up an IRC server (irc/ircd-hybrid), which I don't see
obvious settings for finely tuned channel logging. What I would like to
do is log individual channels without depending on a connected client.
In all my searching I found software that either:
1.) depends on a 100% connected client, but provides concise logging of
2.) logs statistics, rather than the useful information I am trying to
obtain such as, who pastes the most links, who 'smiley's the most, etc.
My interest is in the useful information in the channel, not statistics;
ultimately, I want to have the channel conversations archived.
I'd like to do this on the server itself. For example, in the event I
have to reboot my machine or the disk dies, or whatever bad event, I
don't want to concern myself with missed data, corrupt logs, or a
disconnected client, so I would like this to run unprivileged and
without an interactive shell.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them before I go
reinventing the wheel.
Thanks, best regards, and sorry for the off-topic post.
