Ranchers,

I am looking to implement the following logging functionality in websphere 7. I am using log4j for logging, using a log4j.configuration file and all my logs are written to the SystemOut.log of that app server(Its a distributed app deployed on multiple app servers). Now I don't want to log to SystemOut.log but to a custom log file like Application.log. I am a little lost here because now I cant have one log4j.properties file(because if I use a rolling file appender in log4j.properties), the log folder of each app server varies.
For example for app server1 the log folder is
<WAS_ROOT>/logs/appserver1
and for app server2 the log folder is
<WAS_ROOT>/logs/appserver2

I am a little lost here. How do i configure each app server's logging?

Seems like this is a problem many people should have hit into but couldn't figure out a solution.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
