Subject RE: Help Log4j Chainsaw - VFSLogFilePatternReceiver Usage
Date Mon, 25 Jul 2011 15:27:31 GMT
Thank you Scott.  It works for the local log file.  Everything is displayed under Message column.
 I guess I need to try the different format to see how to parse the log file correctly. One
reason it does not parse correctly is that the log entries are not always consistent. Once
in a while there is a plain text entry shown up.

I will try sftp again soon.

Once again, thank you.

Here you go..

1. start chainsaw
2. Choose the file, load chainsaw configuration menu item
3. When the dialog opens, choose the 'process a log file' option
4. Click the 'open file' button and choose the local file you'd like to
process, or manually enter the sftp:// URL you want to use (I'd first try
with a local file just to make sure it works, but once it is working, you
can just change this to your sftp URL).
5. Leave Log file format type as 'LogFilePatternReceiver LogFormat'
6. Click the down arrow next to the Log file format drop down and choose
'MESSAGE' (it will put the entire log line in the 'message' field but you
won't have issues with mismatched log entries, so we will see events come in
to a tab).
7.don't worry about Log file timestamp format, since you don't have
TIMESTAMP field defined in your log format
8. Click 'save configuration as' and browse to where you want to save it and
give it a name (I just entered 'c:\new-logfile-receiver-config.xml' in the
box)
9. Click the 'always start chainsaw with this configuration button'
10. Press ok

Events should show up in a new tab, the tab name being the name of the log
file you chose to process.

If you open the receiver panel you should see a receiver whose name is the
log file you chose to process.

Here is the contents of 'new-logfile-receiver-config.xml' after I did this
(it did create a tab for me, and I have a receiver defined)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/"
debug="true">
    <plugin class="org.apache.log4j.chainsaw.vfs.VFSLogFilePatternReceiver"
name="/C:/andyRILog.txt">
        <param name="appendNonMatches" value="true"/>
        <param name="autoReconnect" value="true"/>
        <param name="fileURL" value="file:/C:/andyRILog.txt"/>
        <param name="logFormat" value="MESSAGE"/>
        <param name="name" value="/C:/andyRILog.txt"/>
        <param name="promptForUserInfo" value="false"/>
        <param name="tailing" value="true"/>
        <param name="timestampFormat" value="yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss,SSS"/>
        <param name="waitMillis" value="2000"/>
    </plugin>
</log4j:configuration>

Again, if you are going to try sftp after this, change promptForUserInfo to
true and change your fileURL.  You can play with the logFormat and
timestampFormat once you have it working as well.

This worked for me out of the box with the developer snapshot you downloaded
from http://people.apache.org/~sdeboy
