-------------------------------------------

             Summary: Log4j should be initialized using java system properties, not code
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3546
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3546
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs


Our log4j configuration files are confusing. It is not clear, unless looking at code, how
our configuration files for logging are supposed to be used, and for which services.

Even then, there are bugs, such as ACCUMULO-3544, because we assume we can log normally without
first initializating the logging system.

We should rely on log4j's default behavior to initialize the logging based on standard configuration
files. If we need to specify a different file, we should do that with the java system properties
that log4j supports ({{-Dlog4j=...}}) and set those in our environment scripts.
