Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4J2-1812) Improve error message when log4j 2 configuration file not found
Date Sun, 12 Feb 2017 05:15:42 GMT
Remko Popma created LOG4J2-1812:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Improve error message when log4j 2 configuration file not found
                 Key: LOG4J2-1812
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1812
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Configurators
    Affects Versions: 2.8, 2.7, 2.6, 2.5, 2.4, 2.3
            Reporter: Remko Popma
            Assignee: Remko Popma
             Fix For: 2.8.1


When configuration fails because no Log4j 2 configuration file is found, the following message
is logged to the console at ERROR level: 

{code}
No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to the
console.
{code}

We should be able to improve this. One idea is to add this:

{code}
No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to the
console. Set system property 'org.apache.logging.log4j.simplelog.StatusLogger.level' to TRACE
to show Log4j2 initialization internal logging.
{code}

Another idea is to dump the contents of the StatusLogger ring buffer to the console.
