The file in a running installation you want is:
/etc/cloudstack/management/ log4j-cloud.xml

It is generally dynamic - you don't have to restart mgmt. server, it just takes a few seconds
to kick in.

If you're looking at the source code, various components use logging - SystemVMs, KVM agents,
CloudStack mgmt. servers.
So there'll be multiple occurrences
As Koushik says, I think ./client/tomcatconf/ is the one for the mgmt. server.

Kind regards,

Paul Angus

Re: [discuss] CloudStack logging </div><div> </div> Based on the namespace
log level can be set. It needs to be configured in the log4j.
Check client/tomcatconf/ in the source code and you will get an idea.

Do you have to recompile in order to turn off the logging for a specific package or class?
 If yes, that is a show stopper for almost everyone...
If it only requires a management server restart, that is more realistic.
