    JBOSS on CentOS - Logging Issue

    Vito Andolini Newbie

      We've been running an application on liferay 3.6.1, running in JBoss4 on a Windows server.

      On migrating the solution to a CentOS server, it appears to run alright at first. However, after about 30mins, we notice serious logging activity resulting in the log files growing to up to 4GB daily. We change the logger from the DailyRollingAppender to the RollingAppender to cut of at 2MB and the server generates about 8 2MB logfiles every second.

      This is very strange, since once the problem starts, even after we undeploy all our ears and the liferay ear from the deploy folder, the logging continues. An extract of the logfile is like so:

      2006-07-29 02:15:52,884 INFO [STDOUT] ?

      Notice how many log lines are written every millisecond?

      Any one with a similar experience? Any idea what could be responsible? Your ideas are highly welcome, this is really driving us crazy. This is happening on a life system and consumes lots and lots of system resources, causing us to need to restart the service every hour or so. URGENTLY need a solution.

      Many thanks
