We have a Linux box and Tomcat is installed on

/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.23 ==> $CATALINA_HOME

I have noticed that Tomcat writes to $CATALINA_HOME/work and $CATALINA_HOME/logs directory.

This is an issue for my IT dept, because we don't
monitor those directories for "size". It seems like if left unchecked these could grow unbounded.

I would like to have Tomcat do its stuff in a seperate IT monitored dir on the same box.

Is this possible? or does TomCat code hardcode to base everything off
$CATALINA_HOME..

The work directory won't continue to grow.
That's where the compiled JSP code and classes go.
Once all of your JSPs have been compiled, that directory won't grow much.

I use log4j in my application.
With it, I can control not only where my logs go but when they should be rotated out, etc...

Once things are up and running, Tomcat doesn't write much to its own logs.
