    receive a notification by mail when jboss is started

    nortendo Newbie

      Hello guys,

       

      i would like to receive an notification by mailbox when the jboss is started. I find the mbean: jboss.system:type=Server; Started = true but i don't know how to to receive a mail when the jboss is started ...

       

      Thanks a lot for your help ...

          A simple solution is to use the log4j.

          Use the Mail appender and add a category INFO for jboss Server class.

          Set a filter for this message:

          [Server] JBoss ...... Started in ......

           

          Examples for Category, Appender and Filter you will find in the jboss-log4j.xml or in the Apache log4j manual.

              Sorry could you say if my syntax is correct ?

               

              <appender name="SMTP" class="org.apache.log4j.net.SMTPAppender">
                    <errorHandler Class="org.jboss.logging.util.OnlyOnceErrorHandler">
                    <param name="Threshold" value="STARTED" />
                    <param name="To" value="xxxx@xxxxx" />
                    <param name="From" value="localhost" />
                    <param name="Subject" value="JBoss Started" />
                    <param name="SMTPHOST" value="localhost" />
                    <param name="BufferSize" value="10" />
                    <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
                      <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d{ABSOLUTE},%c{1}] %m%n" />
                    </layout>
                 </appender> 
                
                 <category name="org.jboss.system.server.Server">
                          <priority value="INFO" />
                          <appender-ref ref="SMTP" />    
                 </category>   

               

              Thanks a lot for your help & your information. Have nice day & have nice week-end for everybody

                Syntax is correct, but the element Threshold means 'FATAL....TRACE', you must set INFO!

                 

                Add the following:

                <filter class="org.apache.log4j.varia.StringMatchFilter">
                                  <param name="StringToMatch" value="Here is DEBUG" />
                                  <param name="AcceptOnMatch" value="true" />
                          </filter>

                <filter class="org.apache.log4j.varia.StringMatchFilter">

                                  <param name="StringToMatch" value="Started in" /> <!-- or better match -->

                                  <param name="AcceptOnMatch" value="true" />

                </filter>

                 

                Maybe you must add a DenyAll see documentation for log4j http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/manual.html

                  This is the result of the file log4j.

                   

                  I have a big problem when the jboss is started, the file boot.log is created but the file server.log is not created.

                  The jboss works perfectly

                    I use your xml with my JBoss, the server.log looks correct.

                     

                    But the SMTP will not fit.

                    - remove SMTP appender from root (it will only heat the CPU)

                       because the appender will create the output and the filter will suppress it.

                    - change category with SMTP from 'org.jboss.system.server.Server' to 'org.jboss.bootstrap.microcontainer.ServerImpl'

                      this will be the class with the INFO start message
