Subject [jira] [Created] (KAFKA-2633) Default logging from tools to Stderr
Date Mon, 12 Oct 2015 16:52:05 GMT
Grant Henke created KAFKA-2633:

             Summary: Default logging from tools to Stderr
                 Key: KAFKA-2633
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-2633
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Grant Henke

Currently the default logging for tool is stdout, this can make parsing the output  difficult
in cases where exceptions are thrown, or even when expected logging messages are output. The
most affected tool is the console-consumer but others will have this issue as well. 

Changing the output to stderr by default allows the user to redirect the output to a log file
without effecting the tools output.

Note: Users can change the logging settings by setting $KAFKA_LOG4J_OPTS to use the configuration
of their choice. This Jira is to change the default to be more user friendly
