In the config file

Default logging configuration for your installation is kept in the config file and it may be adjusted there.

logging () {
    rootLevel = CONFIG
    'packet-debug-full' = true
    loggers = {
        'tigase.server' = {
            level = ALL
        }
        'tigase.conf' = {
            level = FINEST
        }
    }
    handlers = {
        ' java.util.logging.FileHandler' = {
            level = ALL
            append = true
            count = 5
            formatter = 'tigase.util.LogFormatter'
            limit = 10000000
            pattern = 'logs/tigase.log'
        }
        'java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler' = {
            level = WARNING
            formatter = 'tigase.util.LogFormatter'
        }
    }
}

You only need to specify the settings you wish to customize, otherwise they will be left as default.

  • packet-debug-full - controls whether log entries should be obfuscated (all CData of all elements will be replaced by CData size: <length in bytes of the replaced string>) or not; default: false.
  • rootLevel - Defines the root level of logging for all components not otherwise defined. Default is CONFIG
  • loggers - Defines the level of logging for packages running in tigase server. This is similar to the --debug setting, however you must use tigase.{package} format. Default is NONE.
  • handlers - Defines the level of logging for File output and Console output.

    1. FileHandler - is the file output for log files, with the following options:

      1. level - specifies the level of logs to be written, default is ALL.
      2. append - whether to append to the log or replace it during restart. Default is true.
      3. count - number of individual log files to keep at set limit. Default is 5. (default settings will continue appending logs until 5 files at 10MB are reached, then the oldest file will be overwritten.)
      4. formatter - specifies the package to format logging output. Default is tigase.util.LogFormatter.
      5. limit - Byte limit for each log file. Default is 10000000 or 10MB.
      6. pattern - Directory and filename of the log file with respect to the Tigase installation directory. Default is logs/tigase.log.
    2. ConsoleHandler - Determines the formatting for Tigase output to console.

      1. level - specifies the level of logs to be written, default is WARNING.
      2. formatter - specifies the package to format logging output. Default is tigase.util.LogFormatter.
