Tomcat 6 server config: alter logging level for startup?

Karsten Wutzke Expert



when Tomcat is started up it outputs INFO-level log entries to the console like


23.03.2011 12:51:58 org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener init

INFO: The APR based Apache Tomcat Native library which allows optimal performance in production environments was not found on the java.library.path: C:\...

23.03.2011 12:51:58 org.apache.tomcat.util.digester.SetPropertiesRule begin

WARN: [SetPropertiesRule]{Server/Service/Engine/Host/Context} Setting property 'source' to 'org.eclipse.jst.jee.server:bbstats' did not find a matching property.

23.03.2011 12:51:58 org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol init

INFO: Initialization processed in 746 ms

INFO: Starting service Catalina

23.03.2011 12:51:58 org.apache.catalina.core.StandardEngine start

INFO: Starting Servlet Engine: Apache Tomcat/6.0.26


How do I suppress INFO level entries and show only WARNING level entries?




java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level = WARNING


in tomcat/conf/logging.properties doesn't work. The JBT server config doesn't seem to pick up that file, even though I set it to the Tomcat installation path. Where can I alter the logging level for the ConsoleHandler?


The overall question is whether I need this at all... I'm just trying to reduce localhost server startup time because I know the prints are slow. Is it worth the effort or should I ignore it?
