Subject Logging Requirement in Tomcat 5.5.16
Date Wed, 21 Apr 2010 08:07:08 GMT
Hi,

I am using Log4j logging in Tomcat 5.5.16 with JDK 1.5.0 update 7 on RedHat
Linux server.

I followed the instructions on
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/logging.html to copy the
commons-logging-1.0.4.jar and log4j.jar into $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib
directory.

and created log4j.properties in $CATALINA_HOME/common/classes directory as
below:

log4j.rootLogger=info, CATALINA
log4j.appender.CATALINA=org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.CATALINA.DatePattern='.'yyyy-MM-dd
log4j.appender.CATALINA.File=${catalina.home}/logs/catalina.out
log4j.appender.CATALINA.threshold=info
log4j.appender.CATALINA.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.CATALINA.layout.ConversionPattern=%d:%p %c{2} - %m%n

After couple of days, I saw some catalina.out files suffix with ".x.gz",
where x is number range from 1 to 30. May I know to get rid of these files?

I only want log4j to handle the file rotation as configured in
log4j.properties.

Thank you.

Regards,
SamKong Goo
