Logging Configuration

FUSE ESB uses the OPS4j Pax Logging system, a standard OSGi logging service that also supports the following APIs:

Three configuration files in the InstallDir/etc directory are used in configuring FUSE ESB logging:


Uses standard Log4j configuration to set the root logger's level to INFO and to define two appenders: one for the console and one for the log file. The console's appender is disabled by default. To enable it, add log4j.appender.stdout.append=true to the .cfg file.


Configures the output of the log console commands.

Contains one property, org.ops4j.pax.logging.DefaultServiceLog.level, which sets the logging level early in the boot process when the pax-logging service it not yet available. This is set to ERROR by default.

The default logging configuration sets the logging levels so that the log file will provide enough information to monitor the behavior of the runtime and provide clues about what caused a problem. However, the default configuration will not provide enough information to debug most problems.

The most useful logger to change when trying to debug an issue with FUSE ESB is the root logger. You will want to set its logging level to DEBUG in the org.ops4j.pax.logging.cfg file.

When debugging a problem in FUSE ESB you may want to change the level of logging information that is displayed on the console. Example 4.2 shows an example of setting the root logger to DEBUG but limiting the information displayed on the console to WARN.
