Subject Running Tomcat under jsvc - logging problems
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2012 18:35:48 GMT
Hi

apache-tomcat-6.0.36
CentOS
uname -m = i686
uname -r = 2.6.18-028stab070.14-ent
uname -s = Linux :-)
jdk1.6.0_07

I have recently upgraded my production server from apache-tomcat-6.0.18 to
6.0.36 so that my live and dev
env's are as similar as possible

6.0.18 runs fine and logs as expected, this version was already installed
when I
started renting the server from the hosting company, it runs as user tomcat
under jsvc.

I compiled jsvc from the source included in the 6.0.36 distro
following the instructions in the tomcat docs and copied
/etc/init.d/tomcat6 (the old start/stop script) to
/etc/init.d/tomcat. I modified the file to point to the new version and
started the server
/etc/init.d/tomcat has been pasted at http://pastebin.com/ihGDJb1C for your
perusal should you wish.

Actually Tomcat runs fine, it serves my site and carries a good load (200+
sessions concurrently with no apparent degradation)
there is no Apache front end, Tomcat runs standalone. The problem is with
the logging

/etc/init.d/tomcat has the following two lines

-outfile $CATALINA_HOME/logs/catalina.out \
-errfile $CATALINA_HOME/logs/catalina.err \

And here's the problem. Most of the logging output ends up in catalina.err
even though there are no errors in the logs
occasionally a few lines from my application loggers end up in
catalina.out. I also have logging.properties
in WEB-INF/classes. This has been around ever since I deployed the first
version of my app a couple of years ago
and has always produced the expected output. Now I get nothing.

The hosting companies preferred solution is to recompile tomcat 'for a one
off fee' (I kid you not). I'm pretty sure that Tomcat doesn't need
rebuilding to run under jsvc
and if it does I'm quite capable of building it myself, so no help there
then ...

logging.properties reproduced below just FYI if you want it.

Any advice on how I can get the logging working will be much appreciated
