So in the new system, piece of software that will want to access logs, will need to query logging retrieval plugin. This plugin will implement interface, so retrieving logs will be the same, no matter where they are actually stored.

Do you have some ideas how actual methods for querying could look like? I'm a bit worried that compared to SQL, they will be very limited.

There is some info on that here http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Logging_2#Public_API  ... but I hope there can be more detail added by the BACKEND team working on the spec.

However, it's worth noting that there will be no need for most Moodle code to ever access logs this way.  Moodle code that currently accesses or joins to the log table (eg Recent Activity) will usually listen to events directly and capture what it needs in the most efficient format.

I also expect any really heavy future analytics processing will take place externally to Moodle.
