Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3450) Example logging configs should disable audit log to application log files
Date Wed, 24 Dec 2014 18:49:13 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-3450:

Personally, I'd like to see the {{auditLog.xml}} file go away completely, and just put the
log rules for auditing in the normal log configuration. As is, our logging is complex enough
(and that's not even including tracing, which is a specialized kind of logging). We also definitely
should not be initializing the logging system twice, with two different files, in the same
JVM. That does not seem to be correct usage.

(Ideally, I think we shouldn't be initializing the log system in code anyway, we should rely
on slf4j/log4j to initialize itself with standard log files, {{log4j.xml}} and/or {{}},
and work within that constraint, but that's a whole separate issue.)

> The presence of an auditLog.xml file controls the "audit" log for incoming clients, security
operations, etc. Because a normal logger instance is used for this purpose, it also gets dumped
into the normal application log files (e.g. $process_$host.[debug.]log).
> We should turn off the audit log in the generic_logger configuration and let auditLog.xml
create the log file specifically for audits when the user configures it as such (as the audit
log is intended to be off by default by virtue of the example configuration files we generate).
