Zulu 2/Logging Properties
If you're running into large log files or just want to limit the size of your log files in general, you may edit the logging properties in Zulu.
Navigate to the following directory for your respective systems and open up
logging.properties in your text editor of choice.
If you cannot find either directory, you may have a custom installation of Zulu. Please contact the system administrator who installed Zulu for assistance finding this installation location.
If you did a hosting provider installation of zulu, the "zulu" in the filepath (the bold large text) will instead be the name you gave to your hosting provider installation.
logging.properties open, do a search for the
1catalina.org.apache.juli.FileHandler.level property. You want to change the text after the property to the level you want to log. By default it is
INFO, please revert your logging level to
INFO if you require support.
Primary Logging Levels
To change the logging level, simply change the last word to match the level you want to log. FINEST is the most granular and verbose level and will log everything. SEVERE is the least verbose and will log only SEVERE level errors.
1catalina.org.apache.juli.FileHandler.level = SEVERE
Once you've set it to the level you'd like, go ahead and save the file.
Restart Zulu in the 360Works Admin Tool to begin logging at the level you've set. This utility is found in /Applications on Mac or C:\Program Files\360Works on Windows
Reasons to change logging level
For a single-instance of Zulu changing the level will likely be unnecessary, but for multiple instances (which you will need to change the logging properties for each instance) your log file can build up, fast. Changing the log level can save disk space on your system, especially if you have Zulu refreshing at a short interval.
