Subject RE: Where does my stderr go?
Date Fri, 07 Jan 2011 16:16:31 GMT
I've noticed that stderr is almost always empty on Windows, unless you get an OOM error.  That
will show up there.
Could it possibly be getting routed to another log file? Or eaten by the JVM?  Is this one
of those swalloutOutput instances?
Someone else might be able to answer.

okay, I thought I'd seen something like what I assumed...

So it brings me back to my original question of this thread: where does my stderr go, if it
does not appear in the stderr_XXX.log?

Some additional info, which I just saw and which looks strange to me:

the stdout_XXX.log doesn't change it's date.

That is to say that I have stdout_20101221.log which also contains log

entries from today, 12-22. I was under the impression that Tomcat

automatically closes the file at midnight and creates a new one with the

appr. date...
