Hi Akhilesh,

have you checked your file system permissions? Has the Tomcat runtime user the permissions
to write into the log directory?



BTW: Tomcat 6 ist end of life since 31 December 2016 (
Please consider upgrading to Tomcat 9.

Betreff: Catalina.out not updating

Hi All,

We are facing a situation wherein one of our production servers running tomcat 6.0.18 is unable
to generate logs after service startup. Logging just stops after service start up.


The setup is such a way that the control flows from a Apache Webserver to Jboss application
server to Tomcat server. The tomcat server will connect to the external API URLs and logs
should be generated for the same which is not working from past one week.

Just to give you an insight we are using source code based tomcat server and not rpm based.
So the service startup is done using script.

We tried swapping the IP of the server with the one that was working with no luck (The status
was reversed with the server with same IP still not working). Which means there is something
to do with the IP which is causing that issue (our assumption). 

Please let me know what else needs to checked in order to make this working. The application
itself is working fine. However the issue is with only the log generation which is very critical
for tracking the application.

Details of troubleshooting done so far : 

1.       Cleared the logs, restarted the service – No luck.

2.       Cleared the cache of the server and restarted the service – No luck.

3.       Rebooted the server multiple times – No Luck.

4.       Tried starting tomcat from different web root and upgrading java  – No Luck.

5.       Gave full permissions to tomcat folder and log files – No Luck

Thanks & Regards
