Subject RE: logger as a Jini service?

Not as a Jini service.

How do you want to monitor them?

If you'd like to use Chainsaw, there are a few options based on if you are ok losing messages
or not, and if you're in an environment that can send/receive multicast/udp packets.

- Use the recently-added support for JMDNS in Chainsaw (thanks Paul)
- Use multicastappender (requires log4j 1.3 alpha on the appender side) and multicastreceiver
on a well-know multicast address

Reliable (files/database):
- Log to a database (DBAppender or custom logging) and use DBReceiver or CustomSQLDBReceiver)
- Use udpappender (log4j 1.3 alpha on appender side) and udpreceiver 
- Use SocketHubAppender on each machine and have multiple plugin entries in the Chainsaw config,
one sockethubreceiver for each machine
- Write to a log file on each server and use multiple LogFilePatternReceivers or VFSLogFilePatternReceivers
if logs are accessible via ssh)

I'm sure there are other ways but these are a few.  Hope this helps.

Subject: logger as a Jini service?
Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone has worked on an RMI-based logger that
might be modified to be used as a Jini service?

I have several programs running on different machines, and I'd like to
monitor all of them from a single computer.  If loggers registered
themselves with a lookup service, then my central logging program
wouldn't have to know which computer each was running on--it could
just browse the lookup service for the loggers I want to see, or
request all logger services.

Any thoughts / previous work in this area?
