Oracle SOA Suite Log File Configuration

Oracle SOA Suite Log File Configuration

Oracle SOA Suite components generate log files containing messages that record all types of events, including startup and shutdown information, errors, warning messages, access information on HTTP requests, and additional information.
To configure log files:
  1. Access this page through one of the following options:
    From the SOA Infrastructure Menu...From the SOA Folder in the Navigator...
    1. Select Logs > Log Configuration.
    1. Right-click soa-infra.
    2. Select Logs > Log Configuration.
    The Log Configuration page displays the following details:
    • View list for selecting the type of loggers for which to view information:
      • Persistent: Loggers that become active when a component is started. Their configuration details are saved in a file and their log levels are persisted across component restarts.
      • Active run time: Loggers that are automatically created during run time and become active when a particular feature area is exercised (for example,oracle.soa.b2b or oracle.soa.bpel). Their log levels are not persisted across component restarts.
    • A table that displays the logger name, Oracle Diagnostic Logging (ODL) level for setting the amount and type of information to write to a log file, the log file, and the log level state.
