Here are instructions on how to read jboss log files using Chainsaw (available at http://logging.apache.org/log4j/docs/chainsaw.html):

1. Save the xml file included below to disk (change the fileURL path)
2. Open Chainsaw
3. Select the view-show application wide preferences menu to open the preferences window
4. Modify the configuration url field (bottom of screen) to include the URL to this xml file
- example: file:///c:/chainsaw.xml
5. Close the preferences window
6. Close Chainsaw
7. Restart Chainsaw

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration >
<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/" debug="true">

   <plugin name="LogFileReceiver" class="org.apache.log4j.varia.LogFilePatternReceiver">
     <param name="fileURL" value="file:///c:/downloads/jboss/server/default/log/server.log"/>
     <param name="timestampFormat" value="yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss,SSS"/> 
     <param name="logFormat" value="TIMESTAMP LEVEL [LOGGER] MESSAGE"/> 
     <param name="name" value="jbossLogFileReceiver"/>
     <param name="tailing" value="true"/> 

      <level value="debug"/>

Hope this helps

Subject: How to start chainsaw

Hi, folks,


I have installed Chainsaw in my computer, from this link 


But I don't know to how to create Generator and receiver.


>From File ->load log4j File, I tried to load a mylog.log file, but it
doesn't show anything. 

Do I need to configure something? I only have a log4j.xml.

Mylog.log file is generated from my application in Jboss.   


Please help.


Thank you.
