Using a Custom Logback File

To change the logging behavior, create a new Logback file at $HOME/.openig/config/logback.xml, and restart IG. The custom Logback file overrides the default configuration.

To take into account edits to logback.xml, stop and restart IG, or edit the configuration parameter to add a scan and an interval:

<configuration scan="true" scanPeriod="5 seconds">

The logback.xml file is scanned after both of the following criteria are met:

  • The specified number of logging operations have occurred, where the default is 16.

  • The scanPeriod has elapsed.

If the custom logback.xml contains errors, messages like these are displayed on the console but log messages are not recorded:

14:38:59,667 |-ERROR in ch.qos.logback.core.joran.spi.Interpreter@20:72 ...
14:38:59,690 |-ERROR in ch.qos.logback.core.joran.action.AppenderRefAction ...
