Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3450) Example logging configs should disable audit log to application log files

Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3450:
--------------------------------------

Sure, that's fine by me -- the "non-standardness" of our logging infrastructure setup has
been pointed out as "awkward" before.

I'm just looking to make a small fix to prevent Audit from going to the application logs when
the configuration has specifically said that auditing should be off.

Let's open a ticket specifically to track the above concerns since I imagine it will take
some thought and consideration.

> 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).
