    completely turning off DEBUG logging

    creatureoflegend Newbie

      I find the log file heavily poluted w/ DEBUG level messages, even when the application running on the server is not being used. These DEBUG messages are not comming for my app. How would I completely turn off DEBUG logging for jboss?

      Did a windows content search for DEBUG in the entire jboss folder, and change every occurance of DEBUG to INFO. That didn't do anything.

      Basically the only thing I want in the log is the stuff I put there w/ my app (System.out.println, servlet's log(), etc) and bad errors that may happen to jboss.

      Did a search on the net it said you're supposed to edit log4j.properties, but there is no log4j.properties in the jboss folder.

      Pretty please help!

          Depending on the version of JBoss you are using, the file to edit is log4j.xml (for versions prior to JBoss-4.2.x) or jboss-log4j.xml (starting JBoss-4.2.x), which you will find in %JBOSS_HOME%\server\< serverName>\conf folder. This is what you might want to add to that file:

          <category name="com.arjuna">
           <priority value="WARN"/>
           <category name="org.jboss">
           <priority value="INFO"/>
           <category name="org.apache">
           <priority value="WARN"/>

          Change/add the contents based on what you need in the log files.
