Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 837955
1.3. JBoss Logging is sparse on detail
Last modified: 2015-02-05 20:19:10 EST
Description of problem:
Section "1.3. JBoss Logging" would be of interest to an adminstrator (and therefore in the admin guide) if the content covered how to configure logs, their presence and content. This section lacks all.
Clarifying if JBoss Logging Tools are used/supported in JDG.
Confirmation received on ISPN-internal that JBoss Logging Tools are used. Further questions asked of list:
a. Where do log files live in $JDG_HOME as a default?
b. Are there any default log file names?
c. Does JDG's JBoss Logging support all of the following log levels: RACE, DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR and FATAL.
d. Does JDG's JBoss Logging usage include log handlers?
Need to investigate how to:
a. Change settings for logging.
b. Start JBoss Logging, if it needs to be started, ever.
c. Stop JBoss Logging, if it needs to be stopped, ever.
Thus far, added the following new topics (indicated by *):
Chapter: Logging in JBoss Data Grid
An Overview of Logging in JBoss Data Grid *
Section: Supported Application Logging Frameworks
Supported Application Logging Frameworks *
About JBoss Logging
JBoss Logging Features
Section: Configure Logging
About Boot Logging *
Configure Boot Logging *
Default Log File Locations *
Section: Logging Attributes
About Log Levels *
Supported Log Levels *
About Log Categories *
About the Root Logger *
About Log Handlers *
Log Handler Types *
About Log Formatters *
The listed topics are currently sent to Technical QE for review.
