Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-2372) Use POSIX logger for STDERR and STDOUT
Date Fri, 14 Feb 2014 19:38:19 GMT
Christopher Tubbs created ACCUMULO-2372:

             Summary: Use POSIX logger for STDERR and STDOUT
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2372
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
             Fix For: 1.7.0

Instead of piping STDOUT and STDERR to *.out and *.err files in our launch scripts, we should
pipe to the POSIX cli logger (/usr/bin/logger) to log to the system logging facility at the
desired log level.

Incorporating the system logging facilities is useful for system administrators for troubleshooting
and/or auditing. More integration with external logging facilities also means that we reduce
our responsibility to maintain/manage the resulting logs to avoid problems (like filling up
the local file system with logs), deferring that to utilities dedicated to that responsibility.

The command-line options used for /usr/bin/logger should be enough to associate the logs with
the particular process.

(NOTE: Log4j can also be configured to use the system log facility, but that should be done
through log4j configuration, with the appropriate log appender.)
