Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1476) Changes to default log4j.rootCategory are not dynamic

Chris Cardona commented on GERONIMO-1476:
-----------------------------------------

Donald,

I wasn't able to replicate this problem. I modified the root logger level from log4j.rootCategory=INFO,
CONSOLE, FILE to log4j.rootCategory=ALL, CONSOLE, FILE and it behaved as expected. I saw INFO,
WARN, ERROR and FATAL messages logged into the console and DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR and FATAL
logged into geronimo.log file. Note that the CONSOLE appender has its threshold set to INFO
by default and the FILE appender is set to DEBUG by default. Even though the root logger's
level is set to ALL it has no influence on the appenders attached to it. The appender's threshold
settings will be followed. Please comment if you think I misunderstood your problem otherwise
I suggest that we close this issue. Thanks.

> Changes to the log4j.rootCategory value in server-log4j.properties while the server is
running has no effect.
> If you change the default -
>    log4j.rootCategory=INFO, CONSOLE, FILE
> to
>    log4j.rootCategory=ALL, CONSOLE, FILE
> none of the Log4J loggers are updated to emit the additional log levels of Debug, Trace
and All.
> Updating the following appender -
>    log4j.appender.FILE.threshold=INFO
> to ALL is dynamic for already set components, so the timer thread to pickup changes to
server-log4j.properties is working, but the rootCategory is never updated if changed.
