Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1078) Improve logging
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 09:15:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1078?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12481087

Philippe Gassmann commented on HADOOP-1078:

The current configuration of log4j is prints stacktraces if you do "LOG.error("foo", e)" 
eg: I've just added one line in NameNode.open() method : LOG.error("TEST", new Exception("this
is a test exception");

The result in the logs : 

2007-03-15 10:04:27,983 ERROR org.apache.hadoop.dfs.NameNode: TEST
java.lang.Exception: this is a test exception
        at org.apache.hadoop.dfs.NameNode.open(NameNode.java:209)
        at sun.reflect.GeneratedMethodAccessor4.invoke(Unknown Source)
        at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:25)
        at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:585)
        at org.apache.hadoop.ipc.RPC$Server.call(RPC.java:337)
        at org.apache.hadoop.ipc.Server$Handler.run(Server.java:538)

So it seems to be working :)

> Loggers in hadoop are created using LogFactory.getLog("some package styled things");

> This is very confusing since the string specified in getLog() sometime is the class name
sometime not. (eg : the class org.apache.hadoop.mapred.Task contains a logger created by LogFactory.getLog("org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskRunner");
which is very confusing)
> I think that logger should be always created using  LogFactory.getLog(MyClass.class);
and that if a class needs a logger, then a specific logger must be crated for that class (ie:
loggers are private).
