Startup Logging

The startup loggin help you to monitor and troubleshoot issues of the Semarchy xDM platform at startup.

Startup logging begins when you start Semarchy xDM, and traces issues that may take place until the platform is fully started. It helps you identity and troubleshoot possible errors in the startup configuration.

Configure the Startup Logging

This logging is parameterized in a configuration file that Semarchy xDM loads at startup.

To find this file, Semarchy xDM uses the org.ops4j.pax.logging.property.file java property, that you typically set in the /bin/setenv.sh|bat Tomcat configuration file, as shown below.

-Dorg.ops4j.pax.logging.property.file=$CATALINA_BASE/conf/log4j.semarchy.properties

If you are using the xDM - Preconfigured with Apache Tomcat package, or a Semarchy virtual machine started in the cloud, this property is set to the following value, and the startup logging configuration file is located at /conf/log4j.semarchy.properties

With the default configuration, the startup logs are issued in the operating system standard output and in the /logs/semarchy.log file.

Review the standard output of this file to troubleshoot startup issues.

After the startup, Semarchy xDM switches to the regular platform logging, which can be configured from the platform configuration user interface.

The following message is logged to indicate that switch:
