Hi all,

I am trying to log application error messages into syslog using log4j and so far I have no success. I've read and searched a lot of information but could not find an answer.

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:

The application runs on the same machine as syslog. That is what my log4j.properties file looks like:




While file loggers (InfoLogger and ErrorLogger) log the messages into their respective files, the syslog logger (SyslogLogger) does not:



On the same unix box I ran the following unix command in order to test whether can log into syslog at all:


and it was successful - I could see this "just testing syslog functionality" in a syslog file.



Thank you to all in advance for your thoughts on how to solve this problem.


Kind regards,

Alex.

Hi all,

I am still trying to solve "cannot log into UNIX Syslog" (please see original email below). I've turned the log4j debug on (with the -Dlog4j.debug option) and that is what I have



As you can see all looks all right. What would you recommend I should do next? I really need some help on how to solve this problem.


Thanks to all in advance,

Alex.
