Subject request for simplistic Tomcat 5.5 log config
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2008 23:58:01 GMT

I am setting up a server with lots of applications generating logs, and 
would like to simplify my life by handling them all with logrotate, 
which generally speaking I am getting done.
But I have a problem with Tomcat.

For one small web-application, there is thus a Tomcat 5.5 server running.

I am interested only in start/stop and in real errors, and would like to 
have one single Tomcat logfile, with everything in it, as terse as 
possible while remaining useful to track down a fatal error if any.

Currently, despite some chasing around Tomcat5.5 documentation and 
configuration files, and commenting out various things that looked like 
they had to do with logs, I am left with still the following files in 
the /var/log/tomcat5.5 directory. If I stop Tomcat and delete them, they 
re-appear at the next Tomcat start :


(notice e.g. both "catalina.2008-06-04.log" and "catalina_2008-06-04.log" ?)

I know where catalina.out comes from, and that's fine, it can stay.

But how do I get rid of the other ones, or get all these things to use 
the same "tomcat.errors.log" for instance ?
Where do these things "live" ?
(not in the on-line Tomcat5.5 documentation, that's for sure)

(This is Linux Debian Etch, with Tomcat5.5 out of the box, standard 
apt-get install.)

Thanks much in advance,
