I am also using IntelliJ, and I am starting directly from the IDE. Local execution.
This is what my logging output looks like: [1].

I am getting my logger via:
val log = org.apache.log4j.Logger.getLogger(getClass)

how are you starting Flink? Out of the IDE? Using the scripts?

I just created a new flink project with the milestone version. Just putting your log4j.xml into the resources folder enabled the logging (I've set it to INFO for flink and it worked).
I've used IntelliJ and started the WordCount.java from the quickstart.

I think I need more details about your setup to reproduce the issue.

Hi Robert,

thanks for the info.
Adding the parameter didn't help. My logging file is found and my logging configuration for my own logging is working (even without the parameter), it's just that the file in the jar seems to be preferred over my file.

Hi Stefan,

we made a stupid mistake in the 0.9.0-milestone-1 release by including our log4j.properties into the flink-runtime jar. its also in the fat jar in flink-dist.

Maybe you can pass the name of your log4j file to your application with -Dlog4j.configuration=log4j.xml?

The issue is already fixed in the current master but that doesn't help 0.9.0-milestone-1 users :(

Hi Flinkers,

I just switched to 0.9.0-milestone-1, and now I get Flink's logging output again in my console (local execution).
I have a log4j.xml under src/main/resources, which says not to log any Flink job progress updates, and which worked fine so far:

<logger name="org.apache.flink">
                <level value="ERROR" />
                <appender-ref ref="Console" />
See the full file at [1].

However, this file seems to be ignored now. What do I need to change?
