Subject Very large catalina.out containing millions of 'null characters'
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2007 11:29:08 GMT
Another strange one from me,

When starting/restarting Tomcat, it automatically creates a
250MB(Approx) catalina.out file, when viewing the file, it only has
couple of hundred lines showing normal log messages(no errors) however
when opening the file it 'vi' the status line states there are
millions of 'null characters', these are obviously what is causing the
file to be so large.

Has anyone seen this before?

O/S: Solaris 2.8
Tomcat version: 4.0.1

Thanks in advance,
