    Own defined log4j Levels

    neil mitchell Newbie

      I am running JBoss 3.2.1 combined tomcat 4.1.24 on Linux Redhat 9.0 and having problems with log4j and my own defined log4j Level.

      I have a log4j level defined as PERF which I use to get timings out of key points in my application. The PERF debug messages are appearing in the server.log. However when I try and configure an appender to output these messages to a seperate log I get nothing logged out. I am using a LevelMatchFilter within the appender to pullout these messages.

      Below is a fragment of the log4j.xml file defining the appender and the category that uses it

      <!-- Rollover at midnight each day -->
      <param name="DatePattern" value="'.'yyyy-MM-dd"/>

      <!-- The default pattern: Date Priority [Category] Message\n -->

      I have tried various different ways of defining the value in LevelToMatch such as

      <appender-ref ref="PERF"/>

      The Perf Level is defined as follows

      package com.arena.skylla.core.common.log4jlevels;

      import org.apache.log4j.Level;

      public class PerfLevel extends Level{
      public static int PERF_INT = 25001;
      public final static Level PERF = new PerfLevel();
      super(PERF_INT, "PERF", 5);

      Any help on this would be would be great.
