    use-parent-handlers="false" does not work

    Heinz Erhard Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I hope I am doing wrong and can say what it is.

       

      I have a problem with logging, that although i defined use-parent-handers="false" every log is also printed in the root logger (=console).

       

      This ist form my standalone.xml:

      edit2: web-forum crashed my codes, pasted again:

      <profile>
              <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:logging:3.0">
                  <console-handler name="CONSOLE">
                      <level name="TRACE"/>
                      <formatter>
                          <named-formatter name="COLOR-PATTERN"/>
                      </formatter>
                  </console-handler>
                  <periodic-rotating-file-handler name="FILE" autoflush="true">
                      <formatter>
                          <named-formatter name="PATTERN"/>
                      </formatter>
                      <file relative-to="jboss.server.log.dir" path="server.log"/>
                      <suffix value=".yyyy-MM-dd"/>
                      <append value="true"/>
                  </periodic-rotating-file-handler>
                  <periodic-rotating-file-handler name="TEST" autoflush="true">
                      <formatter>
                          <named-formatter name="PATTERN"/>
                      </formatter>
                      <file relative-to="jboss.server.log.dir" path="test.log"/>
                      <suffix value=".yyyy-MM-dd"/>
                      <append value="true"/>
                  </periodic-rotating-file-handler>
                  <logger category="org.jboss.modules" use-parent-handlers="false">
                      <level name="TRACE"/>
                      <handlers>
                          <handler name="TEST"/>
                      </handlers>
                  </logger>
                  <root-logger>
                      <level name="INFO"/>
                      <handlers>
                          <handler name="CONSOLE"/>
                          <handler name="FILE"/>
                      </handlers>
                  </root-logger>
                  <formatter name="PATTERN">
                      <pattern-formatter pattern="%d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss,SSS} %-5p [%c] (%t) %s%e%n"/>
                  </formatter>
                  <formatter name="COLOR-PATTERN">
                      <pattern-formatter pattern="%K{level}%d{HH:mm:ss,SSS} %-5p [%c] (%t) %s%e%n"/>
                  </formatter>
              </subsystem>
      

      After adding this logger:

      <logger category="org.jboss.modules" use-parent-handlers="false">
                      <level name="TRACE"/>
                      <handlers>
                          <handler name="TEST"/>
                      </handlers>
                  </logger>
      

       

      every trace is also printed to console.

      After removing this logger again, console prints as expected.

       

      As far as I understand this would be normal behaviour if I did not defined use-parent-handlers="false" but I did and I do not understand why it is not working.

       

      edit:

      I also do not understand why root-logger is logging it at all, because its level is set to INFO and log outputs in console are of TRACE. This should not happen I think.

      edit3: nvm, since use-parent-handlers="false" does not work, its pushing then up to root-logger, while log-level TRACE is used and because it was defined previuosly, the level of the root-logger in this case is ignored.

       

      If you need further information, feel free to ask.

       

      Thanks in advance.
