Subject RE: Help Log4j Chainsaw - VFSLogFilePatternReceiver Usage
Date Fri, 22 Jul 2011 15:29:07 GMT
Thank you Jake.

Now with my file in C:/MyDocs/logs/mylog.log is loaded, it displays everything in Message
column without splitting into different columns.

On log4j event generating side, I have

<appender name="DRFA" class="org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender">
     <param name="File" value="${catalina.base}/logs/mylog.log" />
     <param name="Append" value="true" />
     <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
         <param name="ConversionPattern"
                value="[%d{ISO8601}] %-5p %t (%F:%M:%L)  -%m%n " />
     </layout>
</appender>

On log4j receiving side: my receiver's logFormat is [TIMESTAMP] LEVEL THREAD (FILE:METHOD:LINE)
 -MESSAGE

I don't know what the filterExpression and customerLevelDefinitions are; so I keep them empty.

How can I make the chainsaw parse mylog.log correctly into different columns?

The file isn't going to be loaded, nor written to, using an invalid URL with
backslashes in it.  Use all forward slashes.  You have...

"file:///C:\MyDocs\logs\mylog.log"

It should be....

"file:///C:/MyDocs/logs/mylog.log"

Or, simply...

"file:/C:/MyDocs/logs/mylog.log"
