Title:  HornetQ Logging Documentation Missing

Describe the issue:

Documentation for HornetQ logging is not present and/or not sufficient.  In support case 00897472, customer was referred to this community documentation link:


Suggestions for improvement:

Would like to have information that is important enough to send to customers to be in the enterprise documentation, not just the community documentation.

Comment 2 Miroslav Novak 2013-07-01 05:05:10 EDT
Logging for HornetQ in EAP 6.x must be set in logging subsystem in standalone-full...xml. For example by:
         <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:logging:1.2">
            <console-handler name="CONSOLE">
                <level name="DEBUG"/>
                    <pattern-formatter pattern="%d{HH:mm:ss,SSS} %-5p [%c] (%t) %s%E%n"/>
            <periodic-rotating-file-handler name="FILE">
                    <pattern-formatter pattern="%d{HH:mm:ss,SSS} %-5p [%c] (%t) %s%E%n"/>
                <file relative-to="jboss.server.log.dir" path="server.log"/>
                <suffix value=".yyyy-MM-dd"/>
                <append value="true"/>
            <logger category="com.arjuna">
                <level name="TRACE"/>
            <logger category="org.hornetq">
                <level name="INFO"/>

            <!--<logger category="org.jboss.netty">
                <level name="TRACE"/>
                <level name="TRACE"/>
                    <handler name="CONSOLE"/>
                    <handler name="FILE"/>

Hi Nidhi,

yes, primary information is that it's needed to add "org.hornetq" category with desired logging level to logging subsystem. This is also possible to add using CLI - we should add reference to Chapter 14. The Logging Subsystem for more details (more precisely  ⁠14.3.2. Configure a Log Category in the CLI)

Comment 10 Miroslav Novak 2014-07-24 04:42:55 EDT
Hi Nidhi,

changes looks ok. I'd just move the chapter to somewhere else, for example to 20.6. Configuration.

There is root logger:
                <level name="INFO"/>
which sets default log level for all packages.

Logger category specifies that a "package" (for example "org.hornetq") will be logged on different level (like TRACE, WARN,...) than is default. So logger category actually specifies exceptions to normal root-logger.

Thanks Nidhi! Verified.
