Are you refering to console output or what is captured in the log file?

Subject: [DISCUSS] Default server log level 

The intent of this thread is to discuss the default log level for the  
Geronimo server. I'd like to limit the discussion to the near-term  
(e.g. Geronimo 2.0.x). IMO, we need a good overhaul of our logging  
code. I'd like to see more structure and consistency in our logging.  
However, that's not a 2.0.x issue.

The current default log level for a Geronimo 2.0.1 server is ERROR.  
IMO, this is too restrictive. I think we should set the default to  
INFO. This will make our server logging more verbose. However, I'd  
rather have too much information, rather than too little.

I think our default target audience should be application developers  
and new users evaluating Geronimo. Currently, these users are forced  
to configure log levels to INFO, so that they can obtain necessary  
information for building and deploying applications on Geronimo. This  
information should be available by default, not requiring  

Users who want to limit the logging output can reconfigure the  
default logging levels, once they are more comfortable with Geronimo.
